Emmen Aerospace deliver Super Swiper to US Government customer
Emmen Aerospace announced today that it delivered last month the first production Super Swiper systems to an unnamed US government customer.
The systems are already seeing their first use in Iraq this month. Several other Super Swiper Systems are to be delivered later this month to other US government costumers. The Super Swiper is currently the most performing hand-launched electric UAS.
With 2 hours endurance on off the shelf rechargeable lithium battery, it can cruise at a speed ranging from 26mph to 70mph. The payload consists of a BTC 88 retractable pan, tilt and zoom color camera or IR camera with auto tracking and stabilization.
“The Super Swiper systems are a great addition to the several dozens of Swiper systems already deployed in the US, Iraq and Afghanistan in support of our soldiers” says Mr. Facchinetti, president of Emmen Aerospace.
“We worked hard at developing a UAS that would exceed the performance of any other similar systems on the market at a very affordable price”. At 9Lbs the Super Swiper is very easily hand launched. “It takes off like a rocket with a 45deg angle and 2400ft/min rate of climb.
Using the Procerus Technologies Kestrel system, it is very simple to use, very reliable and offers tremendous capabilities like automatic moving target tracking/following. The advanced design of the airplane makes it very tough and reliable as well.
The aircraft as a maximum mission payload capability of 2.3 Lbs, which allows it to carry advanced cameras and droppable payloads simultaneously.
