SkyStar 100/180 Mini-Aerostat Surveillance Balloon

The SkyStar 100 System: is a mini aerostat system for close surveillance and reconnaissance missions. It is a very compact, lightweight, and portable system that can be tied to a pick-up truck or carried by two soldiers in their back-packs. Within 15 minutes, it can be raised in the air for over-the-hill visibility. The system is ideal for tactical forces and can be transported, assembled, launched and operated by two fighters following minimal training. Fully customizable, it can accommodate a variety of payloads, such as cameras, communication devices, etc. Exceptionally cost-effective, the system allows soldiers to focus on a particular range and specific point in the field.

The SkyStar 180 System: a small size, mobile aerostat designed for tactical mid-range surveillance and public safety, police, and military applications. Based on a towable trailer, the system has a stabilized day/night electro-optical payload suspended from a helium filled aerostat, tethered to a ground system. It operates continuously at wind velocity of up to 40 knots, and can lift a payload of up to 20 kg, providing surveillance coverage from an altitude of up to 1,000 ft. for up to 72 hours, after which it is brought down for a 30-minute helium refill. Only 2 people are required to fully maintain the system.
