Great to see that Zephyr has flown again, the first time since 2014, and has finally broken its own endurance record of 14 days set by QinetiQ 8 years ago.

Prismatic was formed in 2011 specifically to ensure that the Zephyr programme did not fade away following QinetiQ’s initial development work and the visionary support from the UK MOD. We are delighted the effort in finding a new home in Astrium and securing the programme with the ongoing support from UK MOD has been so worth while.
Following over two years of independent development we are now making HALE UAV an operational capability with the completion of our PHASA-35 prototypes next year.
