The first stratospheric UAS of its kind, Zephyr provides a persistent and adaptable solution, unlike other unmanned aircraft. Its persistence enables a capability of flying continuously for months at a time, at around 70,000ft, above weather and conventional air traffic. It is a HAPS: a High Altitude Platform Station, and is the only HAPS to have demonstrated day/night longevity in the stratosphere.
Why Choose Zephyr?
Zephyr addresses the need for a cost effective way to provide both persistence and wide satellite like reach, along with the accuracy, station keeping and re-tasking flexibility typically inherent in conventional drone systems.
Zephyr has wide visual payload coverage of 20 by 30km footprint which enables it to provide a range of continuous surveillance to meet mission requirements as well as high resolution imagery and video capture for intelligence gathering.
Sensors located in the stratosphere can readily detect changes in the environment, gathering more precise data.
Did you know…?
Zephyr has the potential to provide communications to the most unconnected parts of the world. No other aerial solution offers direct to device 4G/5G on a persistent day and night basis, complementary to existing infrastructure.
