Steadicopter is now offering the ability to undertake Electronic Warfare (EW) missions with its Black Eagle 50 robotic unmanned helicopter. This capability will be presented for the first time at the show, highlighting the platform’s ability to perform detection, collection and monitoring of cellular and Wi-Fi intelligence.
Commenting on the expanded capabilities, Noam Lidor, Sales & Marketing Director at Steadicopter, said, “Israel’s security industry is made up of companies at the forefront of technology. Thanks to our collaboration with these companies, we were able to extend Black Eagle 50’s capabilities to EW missions by integrating their cellular payload for collecting and detecting cellular identities and RF signals, and their Wi-Fi payload for identifying, detecting and intercepting Wi-Fi broadcasts. These EW capabilities have been added to Black Eagle 50’s existing GPS independence and marine capabilities. Today, Steadicopter provides a comprehensive response for ISTAR, marine, and inland missions.”
The Black Eagle 50 is ideal for naval missions and is fitted with a special inertial navigation system capability which does not rely on GPS, delivering a significant advantage in GPS-denied areas. The system has a steady hovering endurance of up to 3 hours and flight endurance of up to 4 hours. The Black Eagle 50 has a 35 Kg Maximum Take-Off Weight (MTOW) and 5 Kg payload capacity. It can maintain a hover for up to 3 hours (service ceiling up to 10,000ft) with a total flight endurance of four hours. It has a maximum communication range of up to 150km and a cruising speed of 45 knots (81 Km/h).
