PAE ISR to participate in RASP-B programme

7th December 2018 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


PAE ISR has been selected by the US Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate to participate in the Robotic Aircraft Sensor Program – Borders (RASP-B).

The directorate is looking to equip UAS with different sensors useful in SAR, reconnaissance, active shooter response, hostage rescue situations, and border and critical infrastructure security scenarios.

For the RASP-B programme, PAE ISR will demonstrate the capabilities of its Resolute Eagle in a range of scenarios. Resolute Eagle is a multi-intelligence capable, Group 3 UAS platform that provides real-time C2, data transfer and multiple communication protocols. Its line of sight, beyond line of sight and beyond visual line of sight capabilities enable a wide range of law enforcement, homeland security, humanitarian and commercial missions.  

The single, reconfigurable aircraft comes in two configurations – standard and VTOL – with a flight endurance of 12 to 18-plus hours depending on configuration. The aircraft also features a large payload capacity of more than 75lbs, very low acoustic signature at mission altitudes, small logistical footprint, and significant power onboard for multi-intelligence payload integration.

Testing will take place in controlled airspace at Camp Shelby in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, with an eye to developing concepts of operation for unmanned systems and sensors.
