Israeli company RT LTA Systems will present its SkyStar family of aerostats at the Special Equipment Exhibition and Conference for Anti-Terrorism (SEECAT) in Tokyo, 10-12 October.
RT's SkyStar aerostats are ideal for securing massive public events, as well as for homeland security, crowd control and public safety missions, police and military applications. Offering availability of over 85% in any given area, RT's SkyStar systems have already ammassed more than 1.5 million operational hours worldwide.
SkyStar aerostats were deployed during the FIFA World Cup, the winter Olympic games, the Tokyo Marathon among other large-scale events. They have also been deployed during live concerts in Israel and abroad, securing tens of thousands of fans, and at the huge public masses during Pope Francis' visit to Columbia. As far as military applications are concerned, SkyStar is in continual use by the Israeli Defence Force on the border with Gaza.
“RT's Skystar systems are an ideal solution for securing the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, as they provide persistent surveillance for long periods of time at a very minimal cost. The SkyStar systems were already successfully deployed during previous major international sports events including the FIFA World Cup and the winter Olympic games, securing millions of participants from the air, and received great feedback,” observed company CEO, Rami Shmueli.
