Lockheed Martin enhances Indago UAS

11th May 2017 - 13:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Lockheed Martin has integrated TrellisWare Technologies' MANET software into its enhanced Indago 3 UAS to enable military customers to undertake sensitive intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions securely, the company announced on 8 May.

The latest version of the Indago UAS has improved propulsion technology for reduced noise signature and extended flight time, military-grade encrypted and secure data link, secure and mesh capable video dissemination across multi-node networks; and extended range radio for long distance operation at low-flight altitudes. Its minimal radio frequency footprint is attained by using the TW-600 Ocelot module by TrellisWare.

The UAS, which has a low acoustic and visual signature, is also available in haze grey, which minimises visual detection during missions. Indago 3 has a flight time of up to 50 minutes, a range of 10kms and a cruise speed of 25mph depending on payload, and can operate at temperatures as low as 30-degrees below zero, and as high as 120 degrees.

Weighing less than 5lbs, the manpackable UAS can be unfolded in 60 seconds and airborne in 2.5 minutes.
