Uavos and KACTS demonstrate remote operation for Saker-1B

27th March 2020 - 11:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


UAVOS and King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology (KACST) had demonstrated their jointly developed flight control system for the Saker-1B UAS.

The new system allows Saker-1B to operate remotely without the need for a ground control station for take-off and landing.

This means that the UAV is capable of landing on remote runways and it can be serviced by additional crews before taking off again for other missions, providing operational flexibility.

UAVOS and KACST have successfully tested Saker-1B for automatic landing, taxiing, take off and switching its engine on and off from the remote-control stations. Saker-1B has an endurance time of up to 19h and a ceiling of 16,400ft, providing both LOS and BLOS data links. It was unveiled on 4 March
