Poland orders Flyeye mini UAS
WB Group has signed a $3 million contract with Poland's Ministry of National Defence for the supply of four sets of its Flyeye mini UAS with training package.
The contract includes options for the delivery of ten additional sets.
Each Flyeye set is comprised of four UAS, ground control station and backpacks/cases. The UAS can be hand-launched with no additional equipment and can be operated in constrained spaces and confined areas. With modular design, the UAS can be quickly assembled and dissembled. Its standard observation head carries two cameras: visible light and IR.
The aircraft has a maximum payload of 4kg with a maximum speed of 120km/h, endurance of two-and-half-hours and 30km LOS range.
Flyeye can be used for ISTAR in the battlefield, sensitive areas, national borders, natural disasters or large public events, and can be integrated with light precision armament and an acoustic vector sensor to detect source of fire.
Delivery of the systems to Poland is due by the end of 2018.
