Drone Aviation (DAC), a developer of specialized lighter-than-air aerostats and tethered drones, has announced that it has received an order for aerostat-related equipment to support Blimp in a Box systems owned and operated by the US Army.

The aerostat-related equipment includes lighter than air (LTA) helium based aerial assets which will be utilized to support ongoing solider training and operations.

DAC develops and manufactures the Blimp in a Box (BiB) and Winch Aerostat Small Platform (WASP) aerostat product lines, which utilize a secure, high strength tether line which remains connected to the ground, allowing them to operate in national airspace in compliance with FAA regulations.

DAC systems are intended to provide semi-persistent, mobile intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR), and extend communications for various applications.
