Alta Devices to Showcase High Altitude Pseudo-Satellite Applications at Paris Air Show

In Addition to Enabling Long Endurance for Small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, Alta's Solar Technology is Critical for Delivering Internet to Unserved Billions


Alta Devices will discuss the latest technology advancements and benefits of using solar power on UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) for civil applications and “pseudo-satellites” which will be used to deliver the Internet to places where it doesn’t exist today. Case studies will be shown highlighting how all-day flight times can change everything from agriculture and safety, to long range, high altitude flights which can be used to bring Internet services to the unserved billions throughout the world.


International Paris Air Show
Le Bourget
Booth: Hall 3, C1


June 15–18, 2015


Alta Devices manufactures the most efficient, thinnest, and flexible solar technology in the world and is revolutionizing the endurance of unmanned systems. Because of Alta's unique characteristics, it is ideal for embedding onto the skin of aircraft. A small UAV can now fly as long as there is sunlight, thus changing the utility of these platforms for agriculture, surveillance, inspection, communications, and more. High altitude, long endurance UAVs, sometimes referred to as pseudo-satellites, also require a solar technology with a high power-to-weight ratio in order to stay airborne for extended periods of time. Use cases of solar powered UAVs in military and civil applications will be showcased.
