Increased Flexibility

Persistent intelligence surveillance and reconnaissance

With their ability to be deployed for extended time periods, Lighter than Air (LTA) vehicles are well suited for aerial early warning, homeland security, border & maritime surveillance situations. Lighter than Air platforms are generally classified into powered and unpowered, with the latter mostly tethered configurations. Platforms used in ISR operations can be manned, unmanned or both. Unmanned LTA’s are predominantly utilised for such applications.

LTA systems are composed of three main components: platform, payload and ground control station.
