Romain Chabert, managing director of Airstar Aerospace, will be making a presentation about the company, which will also be deploying its intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR)

ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance) dedicated balloon – Eagle Owl – which is equipped with sensors and optical devices, allowing for efficient surveillance, day and night, target zoom and tracking as well as GPS co-ordinate pointing.

The Eagle Owl is set to be a highlight at this year’s show for both visitors and industry professionals. Owing to its military confidentiality, it has rarely ever been shown to the public, and will be presented at Le Bourget in a previously unreleased version.

With an impressive number of trusting industry brands and research companies on their side, including Thales Alenia Space, the CNES, and the European Space Agency, Airstar Aerospace’s goal is to become the world’s number one reference in its sector.

Commenting on this ambition, Romain Chabert explains: “The fact that Airstar Aerospace is now exhibiting at the Paris Air Show is a strong message sent to the aerospace and aeronautical industries. People will find in Airstar Aerospace a unique partner, a manufacturer of complex woven fabrics and highly technical tailored films dedicated to the defence, research, telecoms and transport industries.

“Our solutions help to secure areas (control of borders and strategic sites, fight against terrorism and drug trafficking); they help to connect people (5G diffusion), to analyse (environmental surveillance) and they contribute to heavy load transportation. All these projects are fundamental in the making of a safer, better connected world, with the future generations in mind.”

Airstar Aerospace will also be represented at the show via a number of exhibiting partners, including Thales Alenia Space for which Airstar Aerospace is providing the Stratobus fully-equipped envelope.
