Claimed to be the lightest system in its category, the BLACK EAGLE 50 (currently undergoing demos with a number of customers around the world, ahead of expected orders) will be unveiled in its final configuration at EUROSATORY.
Press Release: Steadicopter Ltd. – a leading provider of advanced Unmanned Robotics Helicopters for Defence, HLS and civilian applications – will unveil the final configuration of its BLACK EAGLE 50 Rotary Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (RUAV) system at EUROSATORY 2018.
“We are proud to announce we have completed development of the BLACK EAGLE 50 RUAV and to present the final configuration at EUROSATORY.” says Noam Lidor, Sales & Marketing Manager of Steadicopter. “We have developed the system to provide a real tactical response to ISTAR missions at sea and on land. Most similar platforms on the market are much larger and heavier, resulting in cumbersome maintenance, mobility and operation, and less flexibility and agility. The BLACK EAGLE 50 is actually the smallest platform in its category, easy to maintain and operate, while preserving high performance, including extended air time and the ability to carry a variety of payloads.”
The BLACK EAGLE 50 is a VTOL (Vertical Take-off and Landing) robotic observation system. It is an ideal solution for tactical maritime and land Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition and Reconnaissance (ISTAR) missions. The system has a steady hovering endurance of up to three hours and flight endurance of up to four hours. At only 30kg, the BLACK EAGLE 50 is extremely lightweight and compact, with a maximum take-off weight of 35kg, and payload capacity of 3kg. It has a communication range of up to 100km, depending on the client’s requirements, and a service ceiling of up to 9,000ft. Its total length is just 2540mm, while its maximum air speed is 70 knots (126km/hr) and cruising speed of 47 knots (85 km/hr).
“Currently, the BLACK EAGLE 50 is in demo mode with a number of customers around the world ahead of expected orders in the coming months,” says Noam.
