The Twister UAV, which has a flight endurance of 75 minutes and a wingspan of 1.25m, was on display for the first time at AUSA in Washington earlier this month.

Quantum Systems has confirmed the expansion of its family of systems via its newest platform, the short-range/short-endurance electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) Twister.

Twister, which has a flight endurance of 75 minutes, a 10km range and a ceiling of 4,000m, can be disassembled into six parts and carried via a rucksack. The UAV has a wingspan of 1.25m and a cruise speed of 20 m/s. It can be assembled and ready to fly in around two minutes, according to Quantum Systems, and features onboard processing powered by an NVIDIA Jetson Orin AI/Mission processor.
