Altaeros to Deliver Autonomous Aerostat to CBP Under $99M Contract

Altaeros has secured a five-year, $99 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract to deliver autonomous aerostat systems and support services to Customs and Border Protection.

The contract covers the provision of the ST-Flex Guardian Class autonomous aerostat designed to carry more than 60 kgs of payload with a maximum flight altitude of up to 305 m, Altaeros said Tuesday.

Ben Glass, CEO of Altaeros, remarked that ST-FLex suits domestic and international government customers looking for a payload-agnostic platform to support intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions and multi-domain operations.

ST-Flex features a modular payload interface capable of accommodating a range of technologies including radar, electro-optical/infrared sensors, communications relays, 5G and counter-unmanned aerial systems.

The platform uses the Aerostat Autopilot system to eliminate the need for an on-site crew and enable multiple site monitoring from a single operations center.
