BLACK HORNET Autonomous Operation from within Vehicles

FLIR Launches BLACK HORNET Vehicle Reconnaissance System

At AUSA 2018, FLIR Systems unveiled the FLIR BLACK HORNET Vehicle Reconnaissance System (VRS), featuring the BLACK HORNET 3 nano-unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) designed for global military, government agency, and first responder vehicle-mounted operations.

The BLACK HORNET VRS is based on an adaption of the unique BLACK HORNET Personal Reconnaissance System (PRS), the world’s smallest combat-proven nano-unmanned aerial system (UAS). BLACK HORNET VRS enables the soldier to maintain situational awareness, threat detection, and surveillance for battle damage assessment, pre-deployment and route and point reconnaissance, and targeting information without the need for warfighters to exit a vehicle.

BLACK HORNET combines with the VRS to create a real-time situational awareness (RSTA) airborne system for warfighters protected inside a vehicle.

“BLACK HORNET VRS brings unique situational awareness and understanding to vehicle operators, and provides our warfighters improved safety on the battlefield,” said Jim Cannon, President and CEO of FLIR. “The BLACK HORNET 3-powered VRS is representative of the company’s new focus on delivering full-solution technology, and we look forward to playing a role in helping modernise our military customers.”
