Azerbaijan orders Sky Dew aerostat to detect low flying threats

Azerbaijan has ordered the Sky Dew advanced observation balloon from Israel to detect cruise missiles, drones, and other advanced aerial threats flying at low altitudes, Aze.Media reports.

Jointly funded by Israel and the United States, Sky Dew has been developed by Israel Aerospace Industries, which provided the radar, and the U.S. balloon manufacturer TCOM.

A Sky Dew aerostat was launched by the Israel Defence Forces in January to prepare for operational service.

Sky Dew is designed to maintain continuous surveillance for several days and is capable of tracking up to 500 targets with a detection range of over 250 km.
