The ALTAVE COB product is not in its entirety defined and therefore the objective of this project is to develop specific improvements in captive aerostats system low attitude with multiple functions with emphasis on telecommunication Solutions. This will give us the final version of ALTAVE COB item for processing and sale. However, for this purpose to be achieved, adjustments, tests, and adding new devices have to be performed. From a combination of efforts made in R & D projects as Project PIPE Phase 1, Phase 2 and Phase 3 and autonomous results ALTAVE reached a level of maturity in their design of captive aerostats with multiple applications. The company has four products developed ALTAVE VANGUARD, ALTAVE HORIZONTE, ALTAVE TUIUTI and ALTAVE OMNI. The latter commercialized for use in the 2016 Olympic Games. (AU)
