With an upgraded assembly line that allows a faster and more efficient production process, RT can now offer its aerostat systems at 20-25 percent less cost
RT LTA Systems Ltd. – a globally renowned designer, developer and manufacturer of aerostats for use in intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance and communications applications – has inaugurated its new headquarters in Yavne, Israel, the company said in a release on December 18. Three times larger than RT’s previous offices, the new building houses all of the company’s activities under one roof including the aerostats’ production hall and assembly line, a new in-house training centre, an R&D lab and even a gym for the company’s employees.
“As part of the overall upgrade, a special effort was put in rebuilding the aerostat’s assembly line using advanced equipment, in order to allow a much faster and more efficient production process. This now allows the company to offer its aerostat systems at an even more affordable price 20-25 percent less than the original, therefore opening its offers to new civilian markets and to customers that were struggling to purchase the systems beforehand,” the statement from the RT LTA said.
“There was a lot of effort made and money invested in the planning and building of RT’s new headquarters, all in order to allow us to remain at the forefront of technology and to be able to offer our customers aerostat systems which are even more cost-effective, at a winning price of 20-25 percent less than the original price. The current upgrade will allow us to offer systems that will be able to operate continuously for even longer periods of time at a minimal cost. RT’s SkyStar systems are already operating in many countries around the world, offering availability of over 85% in any given area,” said RT CEO, Rami Shmueli.
