U-LTA is a platform initiated and coordinated by IMIEU with the goal of upscaling Lighter Than Air technology (LTA). The platform will mobilize financing, policy, and infrastructure. Through collaboration with academia, business developers, and policymakers the platform initiates studies that investigate the performance of LTA carriers and related infrastructure, driven by the needs of the partners.
Furthermore, the platform aims to contribute to procedures for authorization and certification of LTA carriers. By achieving these goals, the platform contributes to delivering on climate ambitions, such as those set out in the Paris Agreement and the European Green Deal.
