Unmanned Hover Plane
New aircraft bridges the gap between the need to hover and the need to reach long ranges.
Aeronautics Group, a company that specializes in integrated holistic solutions based on unmanned aerial systems, payloads and communications for defense and HLS applications, is launching a new aviation category – the Unmanned Hover Plane (UHP). Trojan, a one-of-a-kind system that bridges the gap between the need to hover and the need to reach long ranges. The new UHP category could be a game changer, due to its ability to perform aerial missions with pinpoint precision.
The system's capabilities support challenging operational missions while simultaneously performing point-to-multipoint Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR), thereby creating a solution for versatile and dynamic environments, and achieving Wide-Area-Persistent-Surveillance (WAPS). The system's multi-platform architecture utilizes multiple sensors, together with advanced analytics capabilities, to ensure accurate, reliable, real-time situational awareness.
The revolutionary UHP configuration gives Trojan a long-endurance, 2.5-hour flight time; long-range of up to 150 km; and fast flight capabilities, combined with the capacity to carry multiple payloads up to 12 kg in weight, all packed into a small tactical platform. The system enables execution of demanding, complex missions by tactical base stations, each of which control up to four platforms, simultaneously. Each platform, when faced with a battle scenario, can channel and produce sensor data that can optimize the mission's performance.
Trojan has been designed to enable operations in harsh environments – characterized by adversary operations, day and night operational activity and extreme environmental conditions – while maintaining high efficacy within a small footprint.
The UHP’s Ground Control Station (GCS) is controlled via a user-friendly interface and can be safely operated by a single operator. Collecting field information, it supports mission planning and monitoring in all operational modes, and payload control.
Aeronautics Group specializes in defense and security solutions, including unmanned systems, multiple sensors, big data exploitation and mission critical communications, customized to meet customer needs for multiple applications in the defense and HLS markets. The Group’s broad product portfolio offers comprehensive solutions for ISTAR and HLS missions, with proven performance and operability. Backed by continuous research and development, these systems are built on decades of technological and operational experience. As part of Rafael Advanced Defense Systems, Aeronautics utilizes the technological synergy between the two companies – Rafael’s advanced air, land and naval defense capabilities and Aeronautics’ proven technologies – to strengthen its own capabilities in the unmanned and autonomous solutions areas.
