TAS-Swri: MoU to cooperate on Stratobus development
Established joint working group
Thales Alenia Space (TAS), the joint-venture between Thales (67%) and Leonardo (33%), a major player in the market for satellites, scientific spacecraft and orbital infrastructures as well as the developer of the Stratobus airship, and Southwest Research Institute (SwRI), an internationally recognized research and development provider, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to cooperate in the development of StratobusTM.
As TAS continues to move forward with the design and development of its high-altitude platform station (HAPS) Stratobus, the other one will support Thales Alenia Space with technical advice and assistance based on SwRI’s considerable experience with lighter-than-air technologies.
Both have established a Joint Working Committee (JWC) to manage their cooperative activities as the Stratobus project moves forward.
