Aerostats

 

Aeros designs and manufacturers products based on the parameters for specific mission requirements such as: altitude, wind speed and operating temperature. We also customize the design and manufacturing process of each aerostat, based on the needs and mission objectives of our customers.  Our Aeros’ aerostats are mobile, cost effective, and are deployed as tactical airborne platforms with surveillance cameras, radars, telecommunications equipment, and a variety of other scientific apparatuses.

They feature:

  • Superior helium retention properties
  • High structural integrity
  • Low operational cost compared to other surveillance systems
  • Advanced flight termination system
  • Automated aerostat management system controlled from the ground control station
  • Mobile ground control system with situational awareness capability
  • Survives high wind velocity
  • Fully integrated turn-key solutions
