Lynx Tethered Aerostat


Rosaero Systems offers the “Lynx,” which is a low-volume aerostat equipped with a mooring station. With the ability to provide continuous surveillance, these aerostats can monitor borders –including sea borders – detect forest fires, detect illegal craft (including those illegal fishing vessels), conduct scientific research and capture aerial photography and video.

Endurance: Each mission can last up to 15 days at the working altitude, with brief landings between missions for maintenance.

Design features: The aerostat features an aerodynamic form, allowing it to operate at the working altitude even in strong winds. The energy supply is provided by a cable tether, which ensures continuous work of the observational camera and air-gas system.

All you want and moor: The aerostats are equipped with the mooring system for stationary use and are capable of holding the aerostats even in windy situations. The relocatable version is also available. During short-term flights in remote areas, it is possible to operate the aerostat without the mooring system when requirements are met.
