Revolutionary Multi-Mission Unmanned Hover Plane
Claiming it represents a brand-new aviation category, Aeronautics will launch its Trojan unmanned hover plane (UHP) at Eurosatory in Paris, 13-17 June.
The one-of-a-kind system bridges the gap between the need to hover and the need to reach long ranges. The new UHP category is a game-changer, due to its ability to perform aerial missions with pinpoint precision. The system’s capabilities support challenging operational missions, while simultaneously conducting point-to-multipoint ISR, thereby creating a solution for versatile and dynamic environments, and achieving Wide-Area-Persistent-Surveillance (WAPS). Its multi-platform architecture uses multiple sensors and advanced analytical capabilities to ensure accurate, reliable, real-time situational awareness.
Trojan features long endurance (up to 2½h), long range (up to 150km) and fast flight capabilities, combined with capacity for multiple payloads up to 12kg in weight, all packed into a small tactical platform. It enables execution of demanding, complex missions by tactical base stations, each of which can control up to four platforms simultaneously. Trojan has been designed to enable operations in harsh environments while maintaining high efficacy within a small footprint.
The ground control station is controlled via a user-friendly interface and can be safely operated by a single operator. Collecting field information, it supports mission planning and monitoring in all operational modes, and payload control.
“Our latest innovative platform introduces a new category in the world of aviation, which will expand force capabilities in the field and create superiority in ISTAR missions,” stated Moshe Elazar, President & CEO of Aeronautics. “Trojan is the first ever Unmanned Hover Plane (UHP) […] Just as with our other winning systems, we are constantly developing new technologies to deal with evolving battlefield and HLS challenges.”
