'Zephyr' refers to a type of high-altitude, long-endurance unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) or drone. These drones are typically powered by solar panels and are capable of flying at very high altitudes for extended periods of time, making them well-suited for tasks such as reconnaissance, surveillance, and communications.

Examples of Zephyr include:

  • Zephyr 7, developed by Airbus Defence and Space, holds the record for the longest duration flight of an unmanned aircraft, staying aloft for over 25 days.
  • Zephyr-S, developed by Airbus Defence and Space, is a medium-altitude, long-endurance solar-powered UAV.
