RT’s Skystar family of aerostats includes the SkyStar 110, SkyStar 120, SkyStar 180, and SkyStar 330. The recent improvements on the SkyStar aerostats minimises the drift and drag, which normally occur due to ordinary aerodynamic changes. This will further enhance the aerostat availability.

The SkyStar aerostat systems are operational under extreme weather conditions with low operational and maintenance costs, and offering over 85% availability in any given area.

“These enhanced capabilities of the SkyStar family have been developed to meet the needs of our customers around the world who require an operational system at any given time,” says Rami Shmueli, CEO of RT LTA Systems. “We have recently completed successful field trials of these new capabilities, including testing them under severe weather conditions.
