This company has commenced the process for winding up.
AEROCAT Vehicle is a design for transportation in hilly inhospitable terrain. With a light road-independent footprint, it can operate in all weather conditions. And at night. This design is an ingenious re-engineering of conventional cable/rope-ways, and a dramatically unique change till date since the times cable/rope-ways were first used in the 1800s. Improvements effected over conventional Cable Systems:
This design does away with bull-wheels and associated engines/motors, with vehicles powered from onboard, removing the straight-line constraints of laying cable/rope-ways, and lengthening the life of cables.
AEROCAT is a Military-grade, ruggedized 5-Seater semi-automatic version (including one Driver), meets SAE International's Automated Driving Systems specification J3016 Level 3.
The two versions of AEROCAT are:
A) Semi-Automatic, ruggedized, Mil-Spec (Driver Driven)
B) Semi-Automatic, pressurized, radiation-protected cabin, liquid-propellant motor driven (Driver Driven)
(see APPLICATIONS below for details)

ii.) Surveilling Borders Along Difficult Terrain In Coastal And Land Areas, Sensitive Zones
B) Door-2-Door Smart Mobility

“there are certain constant factors …the terrain, time of day and weather…
we should allow for them in our use of the armed forces”
~On War, Carl Von Clausewitz
With AEROCAT, this time-worn wisdom no longer holds good in diverse terrain, weather, time-of-day and applications, for roles such as:
Logistics, Ambulance, Terrestrial Space Exploratory Excursion & Patrol
>ARMY MARINES EXPEDITIONARY FORCES PARA-MILITARY
AEROCAT is a modern logistical tool in the hands of the Commander facing logistical challenges in different terrain. An all-weather night-ops, logistics duty Vehicle, for use where no roads exist, in mountainous forested desert or coastal inhospitable terrain.
Mule trains, helicopters and even logistic drones can be replaced for the advantages of all night, all weather, all terrain operational convenience.
Highly trained combat-ready Pilots can now be re-deployed on cutting-edge operations rather than routine logistic duties, while optimally trained AEROCAT drivers replace them. Optimal backup support units can now replace expensive aviation-grade equipment.
AEROCAT enables the Commander to use terrain, nightfall and bad-weather to his logistic advantage, while the enemy sleeps, waiting it out, for rations fuel reinforcements and ammo.
The Commander can order removal crating and repositioning of AEROCAT's Pylons and Cables, adding or removing 'plug-and-play' segments in no time, changing the system's direction, stretch and coverage. Or shifting the direction and stretch of AEROCAT cable-way, by advancing the network or retreating, in step with the trench lines and beachheads.
>COAST /NATIONAL GUARD
BORDER PATROL COASTAL POLICE
AEROCAT is for the modern-day patrols in uniform, keeping a bird's-eye view; Along Coastlines Borders and around remote-yet-strategic Islands;
With AEROCAT Systems deployed along borders, permanent "border-walls" and "Maginot Lines" are no longer required.
Coastline patrolling is now on 24x7, in all weather, all hilly rocky terrain and sea-states - even at night!
AEROCAT descends for a closer look, and speeds along over trackless sandy boulder-strewn or forested stretches.
The silently operating AEROCAT operations, with height and speed advantage ensures nothing escapes the Patrol-(Wo)man's roving eye.
AEROCAT's ability to carry an under-slung Dinghy/ ATV helps secure those suspicious areas spotted from above that need a physical sea/ ground-level look.
No need now for weather-susceptible air effort, or speedboats unable to look over the high-sea-state wave-heights; Nor for Automotive Vehicles deployed along perimeter roads susceptible to IEDs, burning tyre or debris blockade and stone-pelting damage.

Wire Rope Barriers (WRB) are becoming de rigueur, as installed flexible median along the sides of carriageways. They physically separate opposite lanes thereby preventing Vehicles from head-on collision - should they leave their own lanes - and to prevent Vehicles from leaving the carriageway into unpaved area.
However, anecdotal evidence suggests that these twisted-steel ropes under tension, with three to four wires installed with gaps between them, can be lethal- for Motorcyclists as well as lightweight Motorcycles impacting them.
