I’m proud this new LTA solution will enable capabilities supporting evolving tactical missions for traditional operators, but also excited that the simplicity of design and operation opens up this aerial asset to commercial and entertainment applications.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 22, 2014
Aeroscraft Corporation (Aeros), a leading FAA-certified lighter-than-air (LTA) manufacturer and technology innovator, announced today the new low-cost and rapidly deployable ‘Sky Crow” tactical aerostat system has joined the “Sky Cobra” and Aeros’ existing aerostat production models (Aeros 3200, Aeros 21M, Aeros 1170) available for acquisition by governmental and commercial operators, following delivery of initial orders for OCONUS operations.
Aeros’ newest tethered aerostat solution, the ‘Sky Crow’ is cost-effective, providing a lower barrier to aerial platform ownership. It can be set up and operated as an airborne asset quickly with less personnel, and features mission-specific payload integration.
Operational Altitude: 1000 ft
Max Sustained Op Wind: 40 knots
Max Moored Wind: 25 knots
As with each of Aeros’ LTA solutions the ‘Sky Crow’ tactical aerostat can be designed and manufactured based on specific mission requirements, such as altitude, wind speed, and operating temperatures. Developed initially for aerial duration over target areas and to respond to numerous mission scenarios, each ‘Sky Crow’ supports efforts to keep military operators safe by mitigating movement and operational planning by adversaries. It can also be used to provide surveillance capability, supporting or eliminating aerial security at domestic events for instance, or aid communication relays in a disaster response situation, among many others.
“I’m proud this new LTA solution will enable capabilities supporting evolving tactical missions for traditional operators, but also excited that the simplicity of design and operation opens up this aerial asset to commercial and entertainment applications, including advertising opportunities,” explains Mario Pantuso, Aeros’ Sr. Military Programs manager.
