RT LTA Systems, developer and manufacturer of the SkyStar aerostats family, announced May 4 that it is offering its SkyStar 180 aerostat system at a special price for a limited time. The SkyStar 180 is produced in RT's new assembly line, and available for immediate delivery.
The company said that governments and defense forces around the world are looking for cost-effective means of surveillance to secure borders and strategic facilities during the worldwide coronavirus crisis.
According to RT, the SkyStar 180 aerostat is a cost-effective means of border control, HLS, defense, and security missions, as it provides persistent surveillance and communication over long periods at a very minimal cost. Only two people are required to deploy the system.
SkyStar aerostats can operate in harsh weather conditions, and offer availability of over 85% in any given area. The systems have already accumulated more than 2 million operational hours worldwide, according to the company.
Rami Shmueli, RT's CEO, said "During the ongoing coronavirus crisis, governments around the world want to make sure that while most of the citizens are staying indoors, their borders are protected, and no one is wandering around in places they shouldn't be."
"Looking forward to the day after the crisis, countries around the world and especially in Europe will see masses of illegal immigrants at their borders, trying to enter the country. RT's SkyStar aerostats allow protection of large open areas such as borders at a minimal cost of $20 per day. No other defense system, manned or unmanned, is as cost-effective as aerostats, which can operate continuously for days with minimum maintenance," Shmueli said.
RT recently inaugurated a new assembly line that facilitates a much faster and more efficient production process, and decided to offer its SkyStar 180 aerostat systems at a special price for a limited time.
"In days like these," Shmueli added, "while our aerostat systems are operating continuously in many different countries around the world, we are pleased to have the possibility of offering our systems for immediate delivery."
