RT LTA Systems has introduced SkyStar 120, a new mobile aerostat system for forces operating in rough terrain.

SkyStar 120, based on the Skystar 110 platform, is a micro-tactical aerostat system designed to provide commanders in the field with real-time reconnaissance capability.

The system’s ground control station is mounted on an all-terrain vehicle, allowing operators to keep moving and manoeuvring with the aerostat either filled with Helium and ready to be launched or already flying in the air. This allows the operating force to better fit the observation and communication lines in real time according to field conditions. Compact and robust, the SkyStar 120 is operational under extreme weather conditions and offers a surveillance range of up to 1,500ft.

Rami Shmueli, CEO, RT LTA Systems, said: ‘We are unveiling the SkyStar 120 today, after an extensive period of research and development, and after it was presented to the Israeli Defence Force and received great feedback. Compact but robust, and easily transportable, SkyStar 120 is an ideal solution for various of military and security forces worldwide, and is ready for operational use.’
