    Les projets d’aérostats, militaires et civils, se multiplient

    Air & Cosmos observe que les projets d'aérostats militaires et civils se multiplient ces dernières années. En novembre 2021, l'armée de l'Air israélienne a présenté son programme « Sky Dew », un ballon équipé d'un radar de haute précision qui doit être déployé dans le nord du pays. En France, l'entreprise A-NSE produit des aérostats au profit du Bataillon de Marins Pompiers de Marseille, qui a utilisé un appareil (le T-C60L) pour surveiller le risque d'incendie sur le Parc national des Calanques. Frontex a employé un appareil du même constructeur pour surveiller la frontière entre la Grèce et la Turquie, de même que l'armée allemande au Niger. L'entreprise Flying Whales travaille quant à elle avec l'ONF (Office National des Forêts), pour transporter du bois depuis des régions inaccessibles aux moyens classiques. L'armée française a lancé un contrat d'études, confié à Thales et Thales Alenia Space, pour un dirigeable HAPS (High Altitude Platform System), le Stratobus, doté de quatre moteurs électriques et mesurant 140 mètres de long, qui devrait s'élever à 20 km d'altitude et remplir un rôle d'ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance), tout en étant capable d'établir un réseau de communication d'urgence.
