​Paris Air Show: SkyStriker makes debut

19th June 2017 - 18:00 GMT | by Helen Haxell in Paris


Elbit Systems is showcasing its autonomous loitering munitions system known as the SkyStriker at Paris Air Show this week.

The SkyStriker can be utilised for covert and precise airstrikes. It is a combination of smart guided munitions with the capabilities of an armament system in the form of a UAV.

The electrically-propelled system can be used to fly out to a mission area 40km away from where it was launched by a catapult. SkyStriker can look for targets up to two hours within the mission area and with its electrical propeller it can perform covert operations.
