PROBLEM: There is an unused potential that stratosphere can provide us for exploring our universe because thick bottom atmosphere blocks out the most of the infrared wavelength.

OPPORTUNITY: The advantage of stratosphere observation by Stratosyst is that space sky can be observed for a extremely long period of time in conditions comparable with space satellites for a fraction of the cost. Moreover, hardware will be recovered after the end of each mission.

SOLUTION: The prototype will be a fully functional observatory with limited resolution capability due to payload weight limitation (20km and maintain its position for a minimum of 20 hours. Primary wireless connection link back to shore will be provided by a commercial satellite internet connection provider.

TARGET MARKET: Users will be space agencies, universities, astronomical observatories, professional astronomers and possibly amateur astronomers. The product market value is estimated EUR 100.000/year until 2020 with growth ...

TARGET MARKET: Users will be space agencies, universities, astronomical observatories, professional astronomers and possibly amateur astronomers. The product market value is estimated EUR 100.000/year until 2020 with growth to EUR 10.000.000/year be the end of next decade 2030.

BUSSINESS MODEL: Stratosyst is to serve as a service provider and operator of its stratospherical vessels. Payload is to be provided mainly by a customer. There are currently competitors from aerospace companies and privately funded enterprises that are developing High Altitude Pseudo Satellites, with their focus on the global internet connection, telecommunication sector and earth observation with none of them focusing on astronomy. HAPS that are currently under development are not planned to maintain focus positioning needed for infrared observation.

FUTURE: Full-scale product will be able to provide stationkeeping in the stratosphere for months and ultimately years thanks to combination of unique lift technology and state of the art power storage systems.
