Colorado Springs, CO (PRWEB) January 21, 2014
SkySentry announces the release of its TEA Mooring Platform (TMP), after more than a year of engineering development. The Tactically Expedient Aerostat (TEA) is an expedient system, greatly enhanced by a totally self-contained mooring platform capable of supporting TEA’s from 34 to 75 cubic meters in volume. The TMP is easily placed on flatbed trailers, trucks, boats, or a ground site. The platform is stressed for handling by either forklift or helicopter, and is sufficiently heavy to hold TEAs in place without further anchoring.
