Stratospheric Operations and Research Symposium – Mar 12-13, 2024 (Grand Forks, ND)

About the Event


SOaRS aims to bring together lighter than air and heavier than air providers, enablers and customers that will help drive the rapid High Altitude Long Endurance (HALE) and High Altitude Pseudo Satellite (HAPS) development.

Since the early 21st century the aerospace industry has been trying to operationalize the stratosphere using HALE UAVs or HAPS. Join key symposium support from US DoD, NASA, key technology, and governance enablers in collaborating and driving forward HALE and HAPS development.

Symposium Topics


Discuss key drivers of Stratospheric Operations:

  • Challenges and Opportunities of Stratospheric Operations
  • Current and Proposed HALE/HAPS aircraft and balloons
  • Communication and Sensor Technologies
  • Power Sources for Propulsion and Payloads
  • Airspace Approvals and Traffic Management

Learn, network, and engage in conversation about using HAPS emerging capability of stratospheric platforms to develop industry solutions.
