IAI develops hybrid robotic system

14th June 2018 - 11:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has developed a hybrid ground and air robotic system that combines both land and aerial capabilities, the company announced on 10 June.

The new system is designed for a variety of missions including border patrol, ISR, target detection and remote threat neutralisation.

The system’s main components include the RoBattle UGV, the BirdEye 650D UAS, an array of dedicated payloads and sensors embedded in the platforms and an advanced C2 centre.

Together the systems can support operations in complex areas with non-line of sight conditions where each of the platforms can be used as a communication repeater to the other and provide accurate target acquisition using different domain payloads.

RoBattle is an operational all terrain robotic vehicle with advanced manoeuvrability. The vehicle combines an advanced autonomous system that can orient itself accurately in the field with real-time 3D mapping and decision support systems. The RoBattle drives autonomously between points of interest in random order and triggers its various dedicated payloads (observation, detection and lethality). In addition, it sends real-time video on demand, targets and discoveries to the C2 centre and generates alerts on any irregularities.

The BirdEye 650D is an advanced, small tactical UAS. Due to its versatile nature, the system is ideal for a range of missions including intelligence collection, surveillance and reconnaissance at a range of up to 150km. The UAS enables continuous communication between the RoBattle and the command post as well as real-time intelligence during day and night. With extremely low noise and visual signature, it cannot be detected easily.
