Russian satellite with solar batteries successfully passed tests09 August 2016
Drone-satellite “Sova” underwent tests with complete success. It spent 50 hours inflight reaching the height of almost 9 km.
Drone project was created by Tiber Company. With 9-meter wing span, “Sova” weighs only 12 kg. It can spend a long time inflight due to the use of elements which accumulate solar energy.
It is planned to use the engineered satellite for a longtime surveillance in particular areas and for the Internet. Nowadays, space vehicles are used instead but with drone, it would become possible to decrease expenses.
Tiber Company is working on a new version of “Sova” – it will have 28-meter wings. Its testing is scheduled for September.
