Customers Already Signed up for ORBITER 4
At Paris Air Show 2017, Aeronautics Group presents its newest UAS, ORBITER 4, for which several clients have already signed purchase contracts, according to the company. Also on display will be the company’s first multi-rotor platform, the PEGASUS 120.
The multi-mission, open architecture ORBITER 4 is capable of carrying and operating two payloads simultaneously, including maritime patrol radar, cellular interception sensors, satellite communications units, synthetic aperture radar and electro-optical payloads (such as Controp’s XR product). An evolution of the successful ORBITER line, the latest model features endurance of more than 24 hours, maximum takeoff weight of 50kg and a maximum flight altitude of 18,000 feet. Capable of advanced image processing and with automatic takeoff and landing capabilities, ORBITER 4 can navigate with or without GPS and data-link, is airstrip independent, easy to use and maintain and with a low logistical footprint: it can be operated by just three individuals.
Aeronautics has recently leveraged its UAS expertise into multi-rotor platforms, the first fruits of which are embodied in the PEGASUS 120, with an ability to carry a payload up to 75kg and designed specifically for defence and security missions.
“Today’s advanced technology allows us to miniaturise sensors, computers and communications, so that we can offer our customers small tactical airstrip-independent UAS with high performance and a small logistics footprint. Aeronautics Group provides comprehensive solutions comprised of UAVs, multi-rotors, aerostats, radars, and many other different sensors that can be integrated together to one command and control center. We see a growing need for advanced UAV platforms in the international defense market,” the company’s CEO, Amos Mathan, commented.
Alongside the two new platforms, the company will also be displaying its ORBITER 3, ORBITER 1K and AEROSTAR UAS.
