Limor Barak, VP Marketing for Sky Sapience, spoke withafter AUS&R 2015 about the company’s unique niche in the modern world. The company’s Hovermast – a tethered – can be operated anywhere and anytime for observation and surveillance capabilities.
Currently, says Barak, most s do not have automatic take-off and landing capabilities and may lose contact with their operator and disappear. The Hovermast, on the other hand, cannot disappear thanks to the cable attached to it. That is why it can be operated in urban areas or compounds.
The people around it will always be protected.
The market for tethered s is actually bigger than we might expect. On top of aligning with capabilities offered by tactical s and aerostats, as well as being a niche in itself.
