Stratollites vs. Other Aerial Data
The World View Stratollite® is a remotely operated stratospheric vehicle that delivers commercial, scientific, and government payloads to the near-space environment with revolutionary new control capabilities. It provides point-to-point navigation over large distances and persistent flight over specific areas of interest.
Our Stratollites operate at altitudes of up to 95,000 ft. (~29 km) for days, weeks and months on end. They offer 250W of power and a payload capacity of 50kg (with heavier capacities available soon.) And they combine the benefits of geostationary satellites, LEO satellites, and high-altitude drones – offering the ideal mix of resolution, accuracy, and persistent viewing of key targets. All at a fraction of the cost.
