Robonic delivers drone catapult to Cassidian

14th December 2011 - 17:17 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Robonic has announced that it has delivered its eighth Robonic Kontio (type MC2555LLR) pneumatic launcher to Cassidian. According to the company, the system is part of an ongoing programme to support Cassidian’s DT family of systems.

According to the company, one of the most significant features in our launcher is its large speed and mass envelope, with this readily adaptable in field conditions to enable swapping between target types. This was confirmed earlier in the year when
Robonic demonstrated that the Kontio launcher can launch air vehicles of up to 110 kg mass with a 70 m/s exit velocity.

The system has also been designed for rapid deployment and rapid reload. One of the design criteria was that the launcher would fit into a 20 foot sea container and that it is air transportable.
