SUNSTAR – a New High-Flyer.

Solar_Flight“Compared to other solar UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) being developed, the Sunstar promises higher flight speeds in a turbulence-tolerant design, for operation in real world conditions.” “Sunstar takes advantage of sailplane aerodynamic design philosophy to achieve the lowest possible power requirement to maintain flight at high altitudes.”  It takes technology tested on the Sunseeker Duo “to a whole new level.”
Capable of unmanned flight for months at a time, the airplane can also fly with a pilot for shorter missions, but its primary mission is as an unmanned telecommunications platform, staying on station longer than humanly tolerable.
