Aeronautics Group, which is making its debut at IDEX, is highlighting the capabilities of the Orbiter 4 STUAS and Orbiter 1K Loitering Munition UAS at the event.
Orbiter 4 STUAS is an advanced tactical UAS, multi-mission platform with versatile payloads, optional BLOS operation and high endurance for all weather conditions. Built on the system design of the Orbiter 3 STUAS, with its advanced avionics, communications, ground control features and applications, Orbiter 4 retains the legacy capabilities of the combat-proven Orbiter UAS family.
According to the company, the Orbiter 4 STUAS is suitable for both land and maritime operations. The system can simultaneously carry multiple payloads, extending its ISTAR capabilities. Easy to use, with a low logistical footprint and a small crew, the runway-free Orbiter 4 STUAS aircraft suits all operational needs. The drone also has intelligence capabilities, which are usually reserved for large UAVs, on a lightweight, tactical and covert platform.
“We are delighted and proud to participate in and present at this important exhibition for the first time,” said Matan Perry, Vice President of Marketing & Sales at Aeronautics. “The recently signed peace agreement with the Emirates opens up many avenues for regional cooperation, and our company sees this as an opportunity to strengthen relations and business collaborations with other countries in the Gulf region.”
The main applications of Orbiter 4 include: land and maritime ISTAR, target acquisition for precision-guided weapons, artillery fire management and BDA, communications intelligence (COMINT), electronic intelligence (ELINT), electronic warfare (EW), communications relay, border patrol and reconnaissance, ISR envelope for strategic facilities security, search and rescue, and emergency response.
The Orbiter 1K Loitering Munition UAS, designed for loitering attacking missions, has advanced guidance capabilities that ensure high precision, lethality and low collateral effects. Based on the Orbiter 2 Mini UAS, Orbiter 1K loiters and searches for targets, and, when it finds one, attacks it precisely, causing little collateral damage.
