  Ongoing R&D projects

MASTER: Multipurpose Airship in Stratosphere for Telecommunications, Environmental-monitoring and Reconnaissance. Derived from di Eu project MAAT (Grant ID 285602) this high altitude platform, a future product of RIXItalia, could be used in telecommunication, wildfire prevention, border control, etc. Through optical, infrared detection or multispectral and radar systems, it can guarantees constant and effective control 24 hours a day.
