Topic: Stratollites - A new paradigm shift from a traditional Earth Observation System to a full Tactical and Strategic Surveillance solution.
Abstract (not more than 150 Words):
Stratollite is a long-endurance stratospheric flight vehicle capable of station-keeping over areas of interest for remote sensing and communications. World View’s proprietary altitude-control technology allows it to harness stratospheric winds to steer the Stratollite to and from desired locations and loiter above them for long durations. Stratollites can carry a wide variety of commercial payloads (sensors, telescopes, communications arrays, etc.), launch rapidly on demand and safely return payloads back to Earth after mission completion. Oil &Gas industry for onshore and offshore activity-based intelligence and Maritime Domain Awareness for Persistent Understanding of the impacted ocean environment by human activity such as oil spills are benefiting from this cost-effective persistence awareness platform. It is believed to be a game changer to conduct inspections beyond line of site and mitigate capability gaps performed by other traditional surveillance assets.
