The project aims to create an innovative multi-role lighter-than-air (LTA) unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) with an ultra-high resolution multi-sensor system that will increase effectiveness, lower the cost and revisit the time of border surveillance operations, especially on the rough terrain and under extreme weather conditions.
The combined solution will provide high coverage, resolution and revisit time with a lower cost (4 EUR/kg/hr) than satellites and higher endurance (100 kg payload for 12 hours) than drones.
