Falcon ISR sUAV

READY-TO-USE UAS ISR CAPABILITIES AT SQUAD LEVEL

  • Mission success
  • Operational safety
  • Close-up real-time ISR

THERMAL VISION FOR SMALL TEAMS

Equipped with thermal camera for nighttime operations, Falcon is designed for operational use by small teams in the land domain. The system is deployed and operated by a single person.

AGILE AND COMPACT DRONE

With vertical take-off, exceptional handling capabilities, and ability to hover – Falcon is an ideal reconnaissance tool both in confined spaces and in the great outdoors.

SITUATIONAL AWARENESS

Falcon’s handheld ground station has a situational map and live video from the sUAV. The operator navigates the sUAV manually or follow a pre-programmed mission plan – while sharing information in a tactical network.

LAUNCHES IN SECONDS

Falcon launches from stowed to operational state in less than a minute. The platform has an operation time of half an hour and a range of up to 15 km.

About

Falcon ISR sUAV is lightweight, fast to deploy and easy to operate, which makes it an ideal strategic and tactical reconnaissance tool for a small squad.

Essential to reconnaissance or combat squads for recon of danger areas, assist with route recons or enhanced awareness while in contact.

Falcon ISR sUAV is deployed and operated by a single operator. On the handheld ground station, the operator has a situational map and live video from the SUAV. The operator can navigate the SUAV manually or follow a mission plan.

The live video link during flight, which establishes situational awareness of the surroundings, is recorded at all time, allowing for later playback as part of a mission briefing or de-briefing.

When ground stations are connected in a tactical network, observations are shared in the form of POI symbols containing camera footage and timestamps. POI symbols are created and shared with a simple tap on the map.

Falcon ISR sUAV is transitioned from stowed to operational state in less than a minute and has an operation time of half an hour, and a range of up to 15 km.

A quadcopter has many advantages over conventional fixed-wing drones because of its vertical take-off and landing capabilities and its ability to hover. It makes the quadcopter ideal for reconnaissance in confined spaces within urban environments, inside buildings and for close-up inspections.

The payload is easily replaceable in-field and includes EO daylight, thermal and zoom cameras. Specialty payloads, such as long distance Laser Range Finder, are also available.

It is made to be durable and easily fixable in the field as to reduce the down-time.
