Steadicopter to present advanced tactical unmanned helicopter platforms for precision sensor-to-shooter operation

With both the Golden Eagle and the Black Eagle, forces can achieve remote terrain dominance and pinpoint accurate lethal capability over land and sea

Steadicopter, will present at AUSA 2023, between 9-11 October in Washington DC, its advanced tactical unmanned helicopter platforms for precision sensor-to-shooter operation.

These can be based both on Steadicopter’s RUAV platforms: the Golden Eagle with precise strike capabilities and the Black Eagle family for accurate ISR operations.

Based on the combat-proven Black Eagle 50 Electric platform, the Golden Eagle incorporates AI-based technology, and a uniquely Airborne Remotely Control Weapon System (ARCWS). This type of technology enhances situational awareness and enables autonomous multi-target classification and tracking, while the ARCWS locks on the target, tracks it, and ensures precise target engagement.

The Golden Eagle integrates the Smartshooter’s SMASH Dragon system – a unique stabilisation system with proprietary capabilities including target acquisition, tracking algorithms and sophisticated computer vision. These allow accurate hitting of static and moving targets. The system can use various types of weapons such as 5.56 – 7.62mm or sniper rifles, 40mm grenade launches and others, providing tactical maneuvering forces with remote terrain dominance and pinpoint lethal accuracy. Using advanced data processing, the AI system autonomously identifies and distinguishes between different types of targets, in motion or stationary. It can also determine if they have been previously present in the field. Lightweight and enabling long mission endurance, the Golden Eagle is cost-effective, simple to operate, and easy to maintain.

The Black Eagle 50 (BE50), a game-changer for uncrewed operations, provides forces with the cost-effective, superior-high-quality real-time ISR solution, over land and maritime domains, thanks to a combination of covert flight endurance and a versatile sensor suite. With its open architecture modular design, the BE50 accommodates the latest mission payloads, such as EO/IR, SAR, Maritime Patrol Radar (MPR), SIGINT, AIS receiver, tactical communication relay, cargo delivery and more.

With a near-to-zero operational, maintenance and logistic footprint, the BE50H provides wide-area persistent surveillance and coverage for long durations and has all the advantages of the rotary-UAS, such as persistent hovering, enabling additional concepts of operations for many mission applications.

Both systems withstand harsher weather conditions and can carry and fly with heavy and asymmetric payloads.

“Steadicopter is proud to introduce, for the first time in the United States, its advanced tactical unmanned helicopter platforms for precision sensor-to-shooter operation, with minimal collateral damage”, said Noam Lidor, VP Sales, Marketing & Business Development at Steadicopter. The company, he added, supplies systems and services to the IDF and the Israeli Navy and other customers worldwide. We are eager to foster partnerships with various defence and HLS organizations in the United States as our systems are equipped with technologies tailored to the requirements of the U.S. Army, Navy, Marines, SOCOM and HLS users.”
