Port St. Joe-Wewahitchka, Florida- UAV Corp’s (OTC Pink: UMAV) Opens new Space Division for Space Tourism. The Company will announce its full team over the next few weeks which will specialize in composites for the pressurized tourist cabin, propulsion experts and ground support for launch and recovery for the large space airship.
“After the successful flight tests of the Air Force prototype electric airship in September 2021, UAV Corp’s Skyborne Technology continued its effort to develop a “SkySpace” airship that would be designed to take tourists to space at a low cost,” stated Michael Lawson CEO. Some of the systems that will be onboard the SkySpace Airship will be tested in the first half of 2022 with the launch of the new SA 70-12 DATT airship under contract with Gulf Coast State College, funded by Florida’s Triumph Fund as a Disaster Relief communications aerial platform.
“Great news for our region of Florida! The Expansion of the current Skyborne Technology’s airship design to include near space opportunities aligns with the regions blossoming aerospace industry that is home to two air force bases and a myriad of new development companies. We are proud of Skyborne’s partnership with Gulf Coast State College in the development of an emergency response airship that is the prototype for the new airship. The location of their facilities near the college training programs and a stone’s throw from an Eglin Air Force base down range site designated as a launch facility provide for some interesting possibilities,” stated Jim McKnight Executive Director Gulf County Economic Coalition.
Skyborne Technology has continued its Teaming Relationship with Research in Flight, in Auburn, Alabama to further develop the airflow analysis design needs for flight at the high altitudes for Space Tourism.
“Research in Flight is pleased to partner with Skyborne Technology to develop novel, synergistic airship technologies which expand the frontier of lighter than air applications,” stated Dr. Roy Hartfield
“Our company is at the beginning of our growth stage that other commercial space tourism companies were a couple years ago; the goal is to target our cost per passenger to under $50,000 a person opening up the space experience to what we are dubbing the “Peoples Space Experience”.
