Work on the StratSat airship prototype
Prototype model of StratSat airship, which is under development in the UK. The airship, seen here in its hangar, is designed to handle electronic communications and will be powered by solar panels, with diesel engines for navigation. It is planned for the unmanned airship to remain for up to 5 years at an altitude of 20Km, above interference from weather and commercial aircraft.
