SYSTEM

CAROLINA UNMANNED VEHICLES OFFERS COMPLETE 'TURN-KEY' SYSTEMS THAT ARE HIGHLY MOBILE, REQUIRE LOW MANPOWER, & ARE SUPPORTABLE

Carolina Unmanned Vehicles offers you Lightweight Aerostat Systems [LAS], a generic term for a completely mobile solution for multiple uses.

 

Uses include:

  • Persistent large area surveillance

  • Long Range Post Disaster Communications

  • Wide Area Broadband Dissemination

  • Environmental / Atmospheric Research

  • VIP Protection

A version of the LAS, the Small Tactical Multi-Payload Aerostat System [STMPAS] denotes the version focused on military and Homeland Security. It was developed for the US Army to provide intelligence surveillance and reconnaissance capability for small tactical units in Afghanistan and other locations.

 

Missions Include:

  • Persistent surveillance

  • Long Range Communications

  • Covert Electronic Intelligence Collection

  • Border / Maritime Protection capabilities

  • Wide Area Positioning, Navigation and Timing [PNT] Solutions

LIFTING AEROSTAT

A patented "lifting aerostat" that combines helium and wind lift so even very small sizes operate easily in high wind, allowing for operating and maintenance costs at a fraction of the cost of traditional lighter-than-air designs

 

Compared to towers, UAS, and aircraft, the Lifting Aerostat System has significant operational advantages for mobile surveillance and communications relay

LONG MISSION DURATION

Long mission duration of days, not hours, is one of the many benefits. The LAS blimp can be flown at a 1,500+ foot altitude to provide coverage 24 hours a day for a week or more without maintenance or downtime.

It covers a far larger area than
tower-based cameras and has reduced blind spots due to obstacles in the field of view

 

CREW &

TRANSPORT

The LAS is carried by a single HMMWV / Pickup trailer and operated by a two-person crew

It can be launched directly from the trailer Carrier and moved while aloft or stowed on the trailer

 

It requires 1/4 the setup time of a tower-based camera system

 

Unlike larger, semi-static aerostats, it is readily air transportable, road  & off-road mobile, & can be carried on military & commercial ships
