HAPS ARE AN EMERGING TECHNOLOGY THAT WILL PROVIDE PERSISTENT, GROUND-BREAKING, COST-EFFECTIVE CAPABILITY

LIKELY TO DISRUPT EXISTING SPACE AND COMMUNICATIONS MARKETS

Elson Space Engineering co-developed the original Zephyr II HAPS in association with QinetiQ in 2002.  

Andy Elson is the founder of the Astigan HAPS project.

From 2013 – 2018 Elson Space Engineering conducted the design and testing of the Astigan fixed wing HAPS platforms with a series of successful low and mid-altitude test flights
