Tactical Aerostat Systems

Rapid Deployment Solutions

Raven Aerostar's Tactical Aerostat Systems are ideal for quick inflation and rapid deployment. Carrying useful, lightweight payloads, they offer a stable platform for communications, intelligence gathering, surveillance, and reconnaissance.

MISSION POSSIBILITIES

MAJOR SUBSYSTEMS

Longer Flights. Higher Altitudes.

We customize our Tactical Aerostat Systems for your mission requirements.

DILATION PANEL
  • Equipped for missions requiring flight times greater than 8-12 hours
  • Allows the aerostat to maintain pressure through the diurnal (day/night) cycle and due to changes in flight altitude and weather conditions
EXTENDED TETHER LENGTH
  • Equipped for missions requiring flight altitudes greater than 500 ft AGL
POWERED TETHERS
  • Power conductors and fiber optics can be integrated with the tether based on payload equipment needs

Specifications

System performance is dependent on flight altitude, operational elevation, payload weight, and weather conditions.

Advertising & Location Marking

The TIF-250 and TIF-460 tethered aerostats are our smallest Tactical Aerostat Systems. They are ideal advertising blimps and can be designed with custom artwork for events and promotions. Their aerodynamic shape allows for accurate location marking while providing wind direction indication.
