Stratospheric Balloons and Airships
Raven Uses Stratospheric Balloon Technology to Monitor Wildfires
In response to a growing need to protect natural resources, homes and lives during wildfire outbreaks, Raven Aerostar piloted a Thunderhead Balloon program in 2021 to monitor active U.S. wildfires. The stratospheric balloons performed station-seeking above active fires, collecting visible and thermal imagery data valuable for containment efforts.
Raven Links Network Constellation of Stratospheric Balloons
In 2021, Raven Aerostar demonstrated that a stratospheric constellation of communications can be established over a battlefield using a mobile ad hoc network, covering over 200 miles. These networked balloons allowed users to track the position of other devices on the ground, provided network connectivity, and created voice communications coverage.
