Mast Systems

BlueSky Mast Systems, known for their patented tripod based, sectional mast design, can be packed down into a smaller footprint than traditional telescoping mast and require no additional support structures such as vehicles, trailers or shelters for deployment. All BlueSky Masts utilize interlocking mast sections made from a lightweight, aerospace grade Aluminum alloy that has twice the yield strength of traditional alloys giving it a distinct advantage over composite mast systems.
