UMS Skeldar launches new V-150 UAV
UMS Skeldar is launching a new rotary-wing UAV with VTOL capability. The V-150 will be available to support military personnel carry out surveillance and homeland security operations.
The platform has multiple payloads across two bays with a maximum weight of 30kg in the main bay and 12kg in the nose. With a 12kg payload, the UAV has an endurance of 2.5h.
David Willems, VP Business Development and Strategy said: ‘With target sectors including defence forces, coastguards, border patrol agencies, blue light forces, fire departments and drug interdiction and trafficking agencies to name a few, the V-150 has been developed as an easy to use, simple to maintain UAV that can assist organisations with a wide range of smaller critical activities.’
The Skeldar V-150 can be fitted with a range of imagery sensors to facilitate detailed real-time intelligence and surveillance to multiple different agencies.
