        Zephyr

        Pioneering the Stratosphere

        ?

        • Zephyr is the world's leading, solar-electric, stratospheric UAV
        • It will revolutionise defence, humanitarian and environmental missions all over the world

        The first unmanned aircraft of its kind to fly in the stratosphere, Zephyr harnesses the sun's rays, running exclusively on solar power, above the weather and conventional air traffic. It is a HAPS: a High Altitude Pseudo Satellite, able to fly for months at a time, combining the persistence of a satellite with the flexibility of a UAV.

        Airbus has two variants of the Zephyr, designed to accommodate a variety of payloads.?

        The production model Zephyr S has a wingspan of 25m and weighs less than 75kg. It is able to carry see, sense and connect payloads.

        Currently in development, the larger Zephyr T has a wingspan of 33m and weighs 140kg. It's a larger size enables it to accommodate payloads with larger masses.

        Connect securely across the globe. Connect the isolated. There are 4 billion people in the world who still don't have access to the internet, Zephyr can change this.

        Why Choose Zephyr?

        • Flexibility: Zephyr’s launch requirements are simple compared to traditional aviation. No runway, no airport. Operating within the stratosphere, Zephyr’s ability to fly persistently around 70,000ft means it can avoid conventional air traffic and operate without interfering with other airspace users. After take-off and ascent into the stratosphere, Zephyr then navigates to the desired location, which may be hundreds or thousands of kilometres away. Zephyr can be controlled from Ground Control Stations anywhere in the world using beyond line of sight (BLOS) capabilities.
        • Safe and secure: Zephyr has civil and military approval from countries across four continents, including the UK and Australia.?
        • Persistence: Zephyr’s persistent flight is unrivalled. Unlike other unmanned aircraft, it uses solar energy, with secondary batteries charged in daylight powering overnight flight for months at a time.
        • Revolutionary: the first unmanned aircraft of its kind to fly the stratosphere, Zephyr is capable of revolutionising defence, humanitarian, and environmental missions all over the world.

        What′s new on Zephyr?

        The world's first operational launch site for Zephyr

        First Zephyr Solar High Altitude Pseudo-Satellite operating site

        Airbus Defence and Space announced the opening of the world’s first High Altitude Pseudo-Satellite (HAPS) flight base serving as the launch site for the Zephyr UAV in Wyndham, Western Australia.

        This site has been chosen due to its largely unrestricted airspace and reliable weather and is the result of significant investment by Airbus into its Zephyr programme.

        Zephyr is the world’s leading, solar electric, stratospheric Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV). It harnesses the sun’s rays, running exclusively on solar power, above the weather and conventional air traffic; filling a capability gap complimentary to satellites, UAVs and manned aircraft to provide persistent local satellite-like services.
