Development of the SANCHO project continues

The SANCHO program (Aerostatic System for Navigation, Communications and Observation Tools) seeks to develop medium and high altitude aerostats for security, fire surveillance and telecommunications applications, as well as the testing of aerial navigation and alignment technologies.

SANCHO will contribute to GMES as an in-situ element, complementing satellite observation, to which it will contribute improved image refreshment times and greater resolution in limited areas.
SANCHO has redirected its objectives toward the development of medium-altitude operational systems as of 2008, incorporating mature technologies, as an intermediary step toward the contribution to vehicles operating at high altitudes. SANCHO is led by INSA and INTA, and has a group of significant companies in aerospace, TIC and environment sectors, as well as in the development of alternative power sources .
