The original Helikite aerostat was designed and patented by Sandy Allsopp in 1993. Since then Allsopp Helikites Ltd has been producing Helikites for all manner of professional purposes. Helikites are used by the military, police and governments as well as for commercial uses such as science and aerial photography. Our Helikites are the preferred aerostat for most situations due to their all-weather capability, high lift and toughness. In military trials and in commercial use, Helikites have survived extreme weather which left other aerostats torn to shreds.
The Helikite-Hotspot is not just a Helikite alone. It also includes specially made ancillary equipment to provide the most simple and trouble-free Helikite deployment in all situations. With the Hotspot you get absolutely everything needed except for the helium which can always be purchased locally or via the internet.
