Paris Air Show: Quantum and ESG bring new ISR UAVs to town

24th June 2019 - 09:00 GMT | by Tim Martin in Paris


German unmanned systems manufacturer Quantum Systems and missions systems integration partner ESG jointly debuted a pair of small mock-up ISR UAVs - Vector and Scorpion - at Le Bourget.

Sharing a range of common features including a glass fibre airframe, detachable EO/IR gimbal, mesh IP encrypted data link and a Quantum made autopilot, the larger fixed-wing Vector shades its tricopter Scorpion counterpart in size, by virtue of its 2.8m wingspan.

Other distinguishing features include: Vector’s 6kg take-off weight, 2hr endurance, 20m/s cruise speed, while Scorpion’s smaller stature limits comparable items, with a 5kg take-off weight, 15m/s cruise speed, 45min endurance
