Coming soon - another new type of Identified Flying Object

Airbus, a European aeronautical group, will soon be flying unmanned, Zephyr, high altitude pseudo satellites (HAPS) over Northern Australia. They will be based at Wyndham Airport, in northern Western Australia.

Each Zephyr aircraft weighs under 75 kilograms, and operates by charging its solar powered batteries during the day, which enables it to operate 24 hours a day.

It is projected to fly at 65,000 feet, with a flight duration measured in weeks.

It has been designed for a multitude of roles, including precision farming guidance; internet coverage in isolated localities, and military surveillance.

The anticipated date of deployment of the first operational aircraft is given as mid -2018, i.e. about now.

Yet another IFO to watch out for.
