Regulus provides a first-of-its-kind platform for tech demonstration, drop-testing, and high-altitude research.  In addition to its high maneuverability and flexible lift configurations, Regulus’ modular mission payload containers can support up to 23,000 kg of gear in a temperature and pressure-controlled environment.  Drop tests can be performed at over 60,000 feet and use a proprietary guided tethering mechanism for multiple fall and return-to-platform experiments.  Other uses include radiation and micro-gravity testing at various altitudes and thermal profiles.
