SYSTEM & SUB-SYSTEM SALES
CUV produces and sells small mobile tethered aerostat (blimp) systems for multiple uses. These are complete “Turn-key” systems with all equipment, including winch, helium system, and generator, carried by a single high mobility trailer.
ANALYSIS & CONSULTING
Working with customers and users CUV defines requirements and responses to new missions to reach clear definitions of goals. This can include incorporating new payloads, adapting system designs to new platforms [e.g. Unmanned Surface Vessel] and developing Aerostat System Specifications and Baseline Designs for customers and their unique requirements.
CUV's in-house Lightweight Aerostat Systems can be can be used for field testing of various payloads, such as communications and surveillance payloads. CUV provides and operates the aerostat system for customer specified testing.
CUV's CUV-owned aerostat systems can be leased for a set time for customer operation.
They can also be operated as a customer service – for example, to provide surveillance over an outdoor event such as a NASCAR race, or to support military, or other training activities
Founded in 1993, Carolina Unmanned Vehicles [CUV], is a small woman-owned company that has developed and produced several versions of small mobile aerostat systems. Our systems have been deployed from the Arctic Circle to the high deserts of Afghanistan.
We provide equipment as well as developmental work, technical support and analysis of aerostat systems and related components.
