The Spider SUAS has recently completed qualification test flights, and is designed to provide high quality intelligence and surveillance information for both the civil and military users.

The MicroFalcon UAS types are also designed in a tandem structure configuration, contributing to the systems’ high survivability and fast redeployment time cycle.
