CARRY OUT YOUR MISSIONS DIFFERENTLY BY CHOOSING THE PERSISTENCE OF TETHERED AEROSTAT SYSTEMS

Because of their duration or their need of stationary position, some surveillance or communication missions can not be achieved by standard drones or aircrafts. The airborne aerostat systems offer the necessary persistence to achieve missions over several days and even months while being a cost-effective solution.

TETHERED AEROSTAT SYSTEMS ADDED VALUE

Persistence:

  • Ongoing operation from 1 day up to several weeks and even months.

Low operational costs:

  • Compared to standard aircrafts.

Access to the 3rd dimension:

  • The sensors are positioned in altitude, which also frees the system from topography constraints.

Deterrent:

  • Visible from afar.

TETHERED AEROSTAT SYSTEMS CAPABILITIES

  • 360° coverage of a wide area
  • Operational 24/7, day and night
  • Real-time and secure broadband data transmission

Tethered AEROSTATs and standard aircrafts, an efficient complementarity
