Aeronautics Shows ORBITER to Finnish Border Guard

Week-Long Evaluation Highlights Agile Capability

Aeronautics Group has successfully completed a week-long demonstration of its ORBITER UAS system, operating from the Finnish Border Guard’s TURVA patrol vessel, the company announced on 14 October.

Conducted as part of the service’s VALVONTA 2 (surveillance 2) project, the evaluation was designed to examine the potential future integration of UAS on its vessels. ORBITER flew a number of diverse missions, showing capabilities in SAR and maritime ISR, while transmitting a real-time video stream to the vessel’s C2 centre.

There is a growing need today for tactical drones capable of carrying out ISTAR missions in challenging marine environments,” explained Matan Perry, Aeronautics’ VP of Marketing & Sales.As pioneers in the field of small tactical UAS, we are proud to be able to successfully demonstrate a solution that has been adapted to meet the needs of the Finnish Border Guard.

Not the least interesting of the various manoeuvres ORBITER demonstrated during the evaluation exercise was the craft’s capture/landing sequence. (Photo: Aeronautics)
