Press Release, 30 January 2020: Steadicopter, a leader in the Rotary Unmanned Aerial Systems (RUAS) industry, expands the Black Eagle 50’s uses to include EW missions. The company will present, for the first time at the Singapore Airshow, the lightweight unmanned robotic helicopter’s capabilities for 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 with its robust mechanical and electronic capabilities supporting flight in maritime environmental conditions. In addition, a special inertial navigation system capability enables the continuation of the flight and the mission, without relying 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. At only 27kg, the Black Eagle 50 is extremely lightweight and compact, with a maximum take-off weight of 35kg, and payload capacity of 5kg. It has a communication range of up to 150km, depending on the client’s requirements, and a service ceiling of up to 10,000ft. Its total length is just 2540mm, while its maximum air speed is 70 knots (126km/h) with a cruising speed of 45 knots (81km/h).
