The X-Tower is designed for an altitude from 200 m to 2000m above ground. A single cable (the tether) maintains the X-Tower in position. Power for the electronic payload and the avionics is provided through electrical conductors in the cable.
Geostationary antenna carrier in lower altitudes to provide GSM, TETRA, WiMax communication.
Camera carrier with an live video feed to the ground station over a fibre (ethernet RJ45) connection in the tether.
The X-STation has a fully autonomous flying capability, up to 100 km/h wind force, it can be easily recalled to the ground, and the operational costs are low.
