Based on the operationally-proven Skylark® I system currently used by many coalition partners, the LE version increases the system’s operational range to 15 km and the endurance to approximately 3 hours. The system also features a unique gyroscopicstabilized gimbaled payload optimally integrated with algorithms derived from larger Hermes® 450 UAS to enable auto-tracking of dynamic targets; an impressive capability for a hand-launched UAS.
The Skylark® I-LE combines the characteristics normally reserved for larger unmanned aerial systems within the form-factor of a man-portable system. Skylark® I-LE: setting the standard.
