RT LTA Systems has carried out a live demonstration of its new SkyStar 110 micro-aerostat system at the SDF internal communication exhibition in Japan, the company announced on 7 March.

The aerostat was presented carrying a radio communications payload. It can also carry surveillance payloads, operating at 1,500ft altitude.

The SkyStar 110 has been designed to provide field commanders with real-time over the hill reconnaissance capability. The compact, robust system can be transported, assembled, launched and operated by two personnel in 15 minutes.

The system is controlled by the SkyStar 110 Handheld Personal Ground Control Station, a compact unit that can be worn over a protective vest or mounted on a tripod.

Rami Shmueli, CEO, RT, said: ‘The patented SkyStar 110 micro-aerostat system is an ideal solution for a large range of missions, including military, homeland security, law enforcement operations and search and rescue missions. We were happy to present it in Japan at the SDF internal communication exhibition, as it is an ideal solution for deployment of radio network in disaster areas.’
