Lindstrand and Solar Ship announce strategic partnership to develop buoyant systems for Peace + Freedom Project

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, December 14, 2018 / — Today, Solar Ship and Lindstrand Technologies announced a partnership for developing a series of new solar powered aerostats for application in peacekeeping and anti-poaching missions.

Combining Lindstrand’s experience in advanced engineering of lighter-than-air systems with Solar Ship’s renewable electric systems will substantially lower launch costs for the Peace + Freedom Project while accelerating technology development. The development of a novel approach to solar powered aerostats provides remote operators with low cost, high altitude communications platforms previously only available to big corporations and governments. The two companies aim to work with remote communities to share knowledge, train local people and develop reliable, low-cost communication for remote areas.

Lindstrand’s CEO, Per Lindstrand: “We’ve worked with Solar Ship for a decade. They have an important mission. They are true visionaries and world leaders in electric systems for airships. They have great innovation experience with a strong global network. We love the mission. It is a big challenge, and we are at our best tackling big challenges.”

Solar Ship’s CEO, Jay Godsall: “Lindstrand is one of the great pioneers in hi-tech lighter-than-air technologies. They have done some of the most difficult projects in history. They bring a wealth of knowledge and a spirit of creativity that is unmatched. They are the mission impossible team and with them, we can do big things.”

About Solar Ship

Solar Ship Inc. is a Canadian company with its head office in Toronto and operations in Canada, South Africa, Uganda and Zambia. Solar Ship develops hybrid aircraft and aerostats to service remote areas. These aircraft use a combination of buoyant gas and renewable energy to create low-cost, sustainable operations. This creates the capacity to fly large loads in remote areas without infrastructure and without the use of fossil fuels. Aerostats provide low cost, solar powered internet connectivity in remote areas.
