Thales: A tethered aerostat for surveillance missions


16.06.2014 Thales

Positioned right above the company's stand, the tethered aerostat developed by Thales is designed for surveillance of theatres of operation, crisis situations and large-scale events. While this technology is nothing new, the Thales aerostat takes advantage of the latest advances in miniaturisation of communication technologies, affording an innovative solution with small balloon/aerostat capacity to guarantee reliable observation and communication services in all circumstances for both military and civil protection operations.
Fitted with a high-definition camera and a miniaturised 4G/LTE tactical modem for a total payload not heavier than 3 kilograms, the tethered aerostat can maintain surveillance over a radius of several kilometres and downlinks the video stream in real time. The latter is displayed on the Thales stand in live streaming and can also be received on TeSquad tactical terminals in near-real-time.
