"Tiger" Tethered Aerostats with mobile mooring system

The aerostat is a highly effective unmanned LTA capable of holding surveillance equipment and communications (up to 450 kg.) at altitudes of up to 3 km, thus providing a range of these devices over 200 km. Tested aerostatic complex belongs to the large volume ones. This complex was established by order of our military for the first time in modern Russia. All original materials and components - domestic production, which also indicates the development of the aeronautic industry technological base.


The "Tiger" aerostat, a volume of about 3000 cubic meters. We have developed this type LTA series of volume of 2500 cubic meters up to 3200 cubic meters for different payloads. All they get the name "Tiger" with certain codes, indicating the volume.
