Aerostat – Tripanko

For some years now, surveillance systems deployed in hot air balloons have been used worldwide. The new aerostats from Aerovehicles add, from Argentina, to the varied world-wide equal or better benefits than those available in the market.

Thanks to its design, rigid / semi-rigid structure and its electric motors, the Tripanko aerostat offers unique features that allow it to remain in the same position in the face of higher winds.

It also has security mechanisms that allow it to land in an emergency and protect both the equipment and its structure.

It was designed and manufactured entirely in Argentina, in conjunction with INTI and the company BAaer, mostly using technology and national materials.
