Aeronautics Group’s Orbiter 4 UAS has completed a 25 hour flight, setting a new endurance record for the platform.

The flight was performed at mission altitude carrying the T-stamp EO payload with laser capabilities.

Orbiter 4 can carry and operate two different payloads simultaneously, integrating EO payload with laser designator, SAR radar, MPR maritime radar or other advanced payloads.

The runway free UAS is highly portable and easily deployable with a small logistics footprint.  The system is designed for ISTAR missions, intelligence gathering, border protection and naval operations with ability to take-off and land from vessels.

Amos Matan, CEO, Aeronautics Group, said: ‘This new achievement highlights our technological leadership in the tactical UAS segment.

‘The Orbiter 4 is a breakthrough system with impressive roadmap, based on Rafael advance technology and payloads and we are committed to continue investing in developing the platform for the benefit of our customers and users, reaching more records and maintaining excellence.’
