Aeronautics Group, the leading UAS manufacturer, will present its newest members of the Orbiter family, the Orbiter 4 Multi-Mission STUAS and the Orbiter 1K loitering MUAS at MSPO in Kielce, Poland. Aeronautics’ high-end aerial solutions are already deployed by the polish armed forces for over 12 years, and serve them successfully in different missions.
With its UAS’s deployed by over 70 defense, military, and homeland security forces in more than 50 different countries around the world, Aeronautics group provides unmanned aerial solutions for the most advanced Defense Para-military and HLS missions. Integrating surveillance equipment with network information, Aeronautics’ unmanned aerial systems are ideal for land, sea and air operations, and have already accumulated hundreds of thousands of operational flight hours worldwide.
According to Amos Mathan, Aeronautics’ CEO: “We are pleased to participate and present our newest and most advanced UAS’s at MSPO. Aeronautics’ aerial solutions are already deployed by the Polish armed forces and serve them successfully in many different missions for over 12 years. We see this as a sign of proof for Aeronautics’ high-end aerial solutions, and we are confident that our newest and most advanced aerial solutions can benefit them as well”.
Orbiter 4 STUAS/NSUAS
The Orbiter 4 STUAS/NSUAS is an advanced multi-mission platform with an ability to carry and operate two different payloads simultaneously. With an open architecture, the Orbiter 4 can be specially adjusted to the needs of each client or mission. Among the different payloads the Orbiter 4 can carry are Maritime patrol radar (MPR), Cellular interception sensor, Satellite communication, Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) and Controp’s advanced XR electro-optic payload.
The Orbiter 4 is continuing the evolution of the Orbiter line and the Small Tactical UAS, and delivers top mission performance with the lightest, most versatile, and most advanced covert platform available today, and is ideal for both land and maritime operations. Based on the successful aerodynamic structure and properties of the Orbiter 3 STUAS, Orbiter 4 exclusive abilities include maximum endurance of more than 24 hours, maximum takeoff weight of 50 KG, maximum flight altitude of 18,000 feet and an ability to carry and operate two different payloads simultaneously.
With Advanced Image Processing Capabilities, Automatic takeoff and recovery system and an ability to navigate with and without GPS and data link, The Orbiter 4 deliver the same capabilities as other Tactical platforms operational today, but with better endurance, serviceability, operational flexibility, and cost-effectiveness. Airstrip independent and operated by 3 personnel, the Orbiter 4 is easy to use and maintain and carries a low logistical footprint. The orbiter 4 is ideal for maritime applications including deep sea and coastal reconnaissance, and is able to take-off and land on any type of vessel, without the need for a flight deck.
The Orbiter 1K is a loitering unmanned system. Given a specific waypoint, the loitering Orbiter 1K can detect and destroy a moving or a stationary target. The system can also operate on the base of a given area range: the Orbiter 1K independently scans the area, detects and destroys the target – moving or stationary. In case the target wasn’t detected or in any change of plans, the system’s recovery capability allows it to return to its base camp and land safely using a parachute and an airbag. Launched from a catapult, the Orbiter 1K can fly for 2-3 hours, carrying a multi-sensor camera with day-and-night channels.
The Orbiter 1K loitering system is compact and easily controlled from a personal GCS. Featuring a highly transportable vehicle-mounted system and a small physical footprint for covert operations and advanced avionics, the Orbiter 1K is ideal for defense as well as border security missions.
