RT LTA Systems Ltd, developer and manufacturer of aerostat systems, has recently completed the delivery of its first Crow1 aerostat system to a European customer. Crow1 is the civil model of the SkyStar 180 aerostat. The Crow1 aerostat will be used for security missions.
Crow1 is a small sized, mobile aerostat designed to be used by civilian clients for security, critical infrastructure protection, public safety, VIP protection and crowd control. According to the company, the Crow1 aerostat system is ideal for persistent surveillance and communication over long periods of time at a very minimal cost.
"We are honored to provide the first CROW1, our advanced civil model of the SkyStar 180 aerostat, to a customer in Europe, as we see great potential in the European market," said Rami Shmueli, RT's CEO. "Using an aerostat is a very cost-effective solution for security, as it resembles building a tower of 1,500 ft. in only 20 minutes, and at a minimal cost of $10 per day. This tower is able to stay stable for days, focusing on a specific target and providing persistent security. No other security systems, manned or unmanned, are as cost-effective as aerostats."
