InstantEye Robotics launches Mk-3 GEN4-D1 sUAS
InstantEye Robotics is set to begin full rate production of its new InstantEye Mk-3 GEN4-D1 small UAS multiple capability system in March 2019, the company has announced.
The InstantEye Mk-3 GEN4-D1 is the latest addition to the company’s InstantEye family of UAS. It is an encrypted, all-digital system that captures real-time visible and thermal video as well as still imagery to support standoff reconnaissance of any target set.
The system has a payload capacity of over 3lbs and has been designed to provide near real-time ISR, communications relay, and chemical/radiological detection.
The Mk3 systems use a tablet computer with two hand controller and can be operated in all weather and locations. The tablet allows operators to programme missions and capture and review still imagery in flight.
The InstantEye Mk-3 GEN4-D1 is currently being delivered in low rate initial production.
