Rapid Demonstration of Important Solutions

With the first flight successfully completed, our team are now preparing for the next phase of flight trials and making sure the system is ready to take on the significant challenges for which High Altitude Pseudo-Satellites provide such an important role.

Communications for isolated populations, remote sensing to spot fires before they become devastating, an eye in the sky for major disasters, managing the huge areas of critical resource under constant threat…..  the applications are essential and it is our job to make it work.
