Aero-T has confirmed that the first SkyGuard 1 aerostat system is all set to go. For those who don’t know, SkyGuard 1 is a large aerostat with a blimp shape. It is capable of carrying payloads weighing up to 90 kg to an altitude of 1,000 meters. It’s got high endurance and can operate continuously for two weeks.

Aero-T is a subsidiary of RT LTA, an Israeli-based aerostat company mostly known for manufacturing the SkyStar family of tactical aerostats. A series of tests were run for each system component to make sure it was ready, and the company confirmed all the tests were successful.

The SkyGuard 1 needs a proper ground station for the deployment of the aerostat. RT LTA has developed the ground station as well. The entire manufacturing process was pulled off in the RT and Aero-T production line in Katzrin, in the north of Israel.

The company claims that the SkyGuard 1 will revolutionize the aerostat market. It’s capability of operating without a break in high attitudes for 14 days while carrying multiple surveillance sensors, and that too in a very cost-effective way, opens a number of new possibilities. The latest aerostat comes with proven solutions for extreme weather conditions, such as over hot deserts to high mountains.

RT LTA Systems Ltd. is well recognized all around the globe for their work with the SkyStar family of aerostats. They are used by several countries and organizations for intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance and communications purposes. With the self-contained, versatile, mobile, cost-effective design, ground control station, and ground system module, SkyStar is one of the most effective tactical systems available. The tether, the lighter-than-air platform, the stabilized payload platform and the sensor suite only make it better.
