SpaceX has filed an application with the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to create a portable version of the equipment to work with Starlink satellite Internet. Vehicles will be equipped with it, including ships and aircraft.

SpaceX Breaks Its Own Record as It Launches 60 More Starlink Satellites
It was the seventh launch in a row for the first-stage booster that helped launch the Falcon 9 rocket.

It is reported that the idea of implementing this technology arose during a conversation between Elon Musk and one of his Twitter followers. In an application to FCC, SpaceX seeks to obtain a general license to provide data transfer services for vehicles traveling on land, water, and air.

At the same time, ships and aircraft will be able to use the Starlink Internet not only in the United States, but also outside the country. In fact, the coverage area will reach the entire globe.

SpaceX Launches the 17th Batch of 60 Starlink Satellites
SpaceX launched the first batch of Starlink Internet satellites this year as part of the Falcon 9 double-record flight. It is the eighth repeat flight and the second in a row in 38 days.

SpaceX noted that more and more people do not want to give up the Internet while traveling. To meet this demand, the company is looking to deploy a cost-effective satellite system capable of providing reliable network connectivity.

The technology will benefit other companies, including Tesla, which can use Starlink to power on-board computers in electric vehicles.
