HELIKITE AEROSTATS FOR COMMUNICATIONS
Height is a tremendous advantage for communications. Helikites are the best airborne platforms in the world for lifting radio communications because they are high altitude, long endurance, all-weather and inexpensive to operate.
No other method of lifting radios has ever come close to the all-round capability and ease-of-use of Helikites
Who benefits from Helikite Communications?
Helikite communication systems aid emergency services, scientists, military, logging companies, mines etc. Helikites allow them to easily keep in touch with each other or to contact the outside world.

Limitless Mobile Coverage Anywhere
Community Airborne Cellphone Towers
Over 30% of the world has no access to mobile phone services due to inhospitable terrain and lack of infrastructure. By lifting base stations high into the sky, Helikites can economically provide everybody in the world with a mobile phone service.
Personal Airborne Cellphone Towers
Anybody can instantly access 4G in areas where there presently isn’t any available by lifting 4G MiFi receivers high into the sky using tiny personal Helikite Hotspots.

Unmanned Vehicle Breakthrough
Long Range Capability
The lives of hundreds of soldiers and sailors are put at risk every day because the unmanned vehicles made available to them do not operate over hills or the horizon.
The airborne communication relays offered by Helikites extend the range of unmanned vehicles massively, thus allowing them to engage and destroy the enemy with no risk to allied personnel.
Complete Real-Time Battlefield Control
Current military radios are limited in bandwidth because they seldom have line of sight over the horizon.
By lifting battlefield radios into the air with a Helikite, a commander (even thousands of miles away) has direct, full broadband communications to every soldier, military vehicle or asset on the battlefield. This can include streaming videos from gun sights, helmet cameras, and surveillance cameras. It also provides full blue force tracking and human vital function data.
This allows far better decision-making and command control of all forces, and ultimately improves battlefield outcomes.
Jam Enemy Satelite GPS
It is extremely simple to jam enemy GPS using tiny, high-altitude Helikites which lift inexpensive consumer GPS jammers.
Fly Jam-Resistant Helikite GPS
New research shows that high-altitude Helikites lifting very low frequency (VLF) long wire antennas can provide worldwide, jam-resistant GPS free positioning.
This not only replaces the need for satellite GPS infrastructure, but is also significantly cheaper, hugely resistant to enemy jamming, and can be deployed at very short notice.
5G Driverless Cars
The biggest barrier to driverless cars is the lack of 5G connectivity over the British road system.
Waiting for normal 5G base stations to cover all areas will take many decades and billions of pounds in money. Airborne 5G base stations on Helikites can provide 5G coverage over every road in Britain for a tiny percentage of this cost, and in a fraction of the time.
