What We Offer

Helikite for Bird Scaring

Birds are afraid of any object that hovers above them. A Helikite will fly with or without wind. Its hovering action mimics a bird of prey, and silently scars birds of orchards, vineyards, vegetables and berries. 

Effectiveness: Huge areas are controlled. Up to 10 Ha(25 Acres) Hawks constantly re-enforce this natural fear. Works 24/7 keeping birds away.

 

Silent: No neighbour complaints.

 

Cost Effective: Inexpensive to purchase and maintain

Environmentally Friendly

 

Ease of Use: Simple to set-up and maintain

 

Helikite for Photography

An inexpensive way to get a digital camera shots from above. Applications include real estate photography, GIS and survey work.

Gyro-stabilised and standard PTZ cameras flown at high altitudes on small Skyhook Helikites provide persistent surveillance for security applications. This system is also useful for use on military test ranges, for film work,  and research.

Gyro-Stabilisation of the video camera allows objects to be seen clearly at great distances. Useful surveillance can be achieved at such a distance that the small Helikite used is invisible to those being observed and out of range of small arms fire. This allows silent, undetectable, persistent surveillance with insignificant running costs.

Helikite for Publicity

No one ever doubted the performance of aerial advertising. It is probably the best way of ensuring that an advertising message is read by all the people in the vicinity. Alone in the sky your message commands far more attention than when competing with hundreds of other adverts and distractions at ground level. Suitable for U-Pick operations, fields next to busy roads, beaches, agricultural shows, craft fairs, stately homes, exhibitions, roofs of large buildings, lakes, resorts, golf courses, concerts, firework displays, parks, farm shops, rv parks etc.

Check your local by-laws.

Helikite for Radio Relay

Tactical Helikites enable  the instant creation of long-term, reliable, high bandwidth, over-the-horizon communications between personnel and vehicles. This allows internet protocol ad-hoc radio networks to be extended from headquarters out to personnel and unmanned vehicles situated far away. Thus enabling control of unmanned ground vehicles, security cameras, sensors etc. to occur via the internet. So operators situated thousands of miles away can take over the work of local security personnel.
