Zephyr is a HAPS: a High Altitude Pseudo Satellite. It's the world's leading solar-electric stratospheric unmanned aerial vehicle.

Zephyr's persistent flight is unrivalled. Unlike other unmanned aircraft, it uses solar energy, with secondary batteries charged in daylight powering overnight flight.

Zephyr flies in the stratosphere, above the weather and regular air traffic, covering distances of over 1,000 nautical miles a day – equivalent to 1852km.

With it See, Sense and Connect capabilities, it will revolutionise defence, humanitarian, and environmental missions all over the world.
