  • HiperSfera

    MALE RPAS solution for various data intensive applications developed by HiperSfera company can play a critical role in Border Surveillance Systems, Disaster Management, Search and Rescue operations as well as Poaching/Illegal Lodging/Trafficking Monitoring, etc. Multi-platform aspect of HiperSfera airship technology caters to a portfolio of possible applications enabling social, political and economic synergy of various global collaborations among governmental, academia and corporation actors.

    We are creating an airship (UAV) that is designed for a slow flight or hovering, for all-weather long-endurance operations and mission specific payloads. As such, Hipersfera fleet of airships can perform as a cluster of robust industrial-grade payload platforms in a reliable, safe and also commercially viable way for extended periods of time (up to 24/7/365). A fleet can leverage its operational altitude, endurance and payload capability through continuous imaging, directly connecting a physical reality of large portions of the ground with the internet, with unmatched spatial resolution (down to a few cm per pixel) and revisit times (down to 1 second).

    What makes our solution unique? There is currently no equivalent commercially available, viable and cost effective solution for the generic airborne platform in a long-endurance, 100kg/10kW payload class. The ability to position a payload above area of interest at a fixed point, high above ground, in a reliable, safe and cost-effective manner, for an extended period of time can also provide with a turnkey service supporting early detection and surveillance of migrants on the EU external border.

    Also as a telecom platform, a fleet of moored HS airships can serve as a broadband network with 10Gbps+ cell “towers” (persistently hovering airships), significantly outperforming traditional, mast based network infrastructure. HS telecom solution offers 90%+ reduction in number of ground infrastructure, resulting in significant savings in network operational expenses, faster network roll-out; on-demand network capacity upgrade; and continuously active geographical distribution of available network capacity.
