Aerostat systems offer real-time surveillance for a variety of aerial photography applications including oil spill response, security, and environmental monitoring. The system can be deployed and retrieved in a matter of minutes.
Aerostat systems are lightweight and portable. This package incorporates patented wings that stabilize the balloon and give lift. The balloon is supplied ready to go, you just add Helium. To enhance visibility the Aerostat has wings in bright orange fabric, LED light, and mooring line ribbons. In addition to the visual references, it is the only system available with integrated radar reflection - helping ships and boats pinpoint the position and providing aircraft with a potential signature.
Aerostat systems have significant advantages over drones. They will stay aloft for extended periods of time and can be flown without a license, can accommodate a choice of cameras and no flight training is necessary – and - they are compact and relatively inexpensive. This system will also operate in higher winds and provide a stable image, even over crowds.
