High Altitude Airships

ILC Dover has been involved in the design and development of high-altitude airships since the early 1980s supporting development programs for the Navy, NASA, DoD primes and commercial customers.  The subsequent growth of the cellular phone market and more recently, wide band internet demand,  has  generated renewed interest in the use of high-altitude airships as a means of providing economical coverage for these services in developing countries.  ILC  supported Lockheed Martin in the development of HAA vehicles including HALE-D (High Altitude Long Endurance Demonstrator).

We also supported DARPA’s ISIS (Integrated Sensor is Structure) high altitude program.  Integrated Sensor Is Structure (ISIS) is a disruptive Command and Control, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C2ISR) providing an  extremely large dual-aperture radar capability integrated in a fully autonomous stratospheric unmanned airship.  Read more about this program at:   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_Sensor_is_Structure
