6m3 Skyhook Helikite

The Skyhook Helikite is the workhorse of the Helikite aerostat range. Designed to lift considerable payloads to higher altitudes than is possible with any other similar sized aerostats. CVAST uses the Helikite for aerial photography in order to create complete 3D models of large archaeological sites through the use of photogrammetry. This method is particulalry useful in urban areas, where drone flying is usually restricted. Another advantage is the Helikite's ability to lift multiple sensors, as opposed to the average drone.
