Abstract
World View’s Stratollite is a flight system that enables new, edge of space remote sensing and surveillance applications at a fraction of the cost of existing flight platforms. Stratollites offer all the advantages of high-altitude balloons – low-cost, rapid deployment and payload flexibility – with an innovative new development: the ability to fly a variety of trajectories that include navigation to a location and persistent flight over an area. Stratollites can carry a wide variety of commercial payloads (sensors, telescopes, communications arrays, etc.), launch rapidly on demand, and safely return payloads back to earth after mission completion. World View is routinely flying payloads to the edge of space for a variety of government, commercial, and education customers. The applicability of the flight platform is only limited by the imagination of our customers and partners.
