04 October 2023. Steadicopter, a leader in the Rotary Unmanned Aerial Systems (RUAS) industry, to present, for the first time in the US a comprehensive sensor-to-shooter solution capabilities based on its RUAV platforms: the Golden Eagle with precise strike capabilities and the Black Eagle family for accurate ISR operations.
Based on the combat-proven Black Eagle 50 Electric platform, the Golden Eagle incorporates AI-based technology, and a uniquely Airborne Remotely Control Weapon System (ARCWS). AI-based technology enhances situational awareness and enables autonomous multi-target classification and tracking, while the ARCWS locks on the target, tracks it, and ensures precise target engagement.
The Golden Eagle integrates the Smartshooter’s SMASH Dragon system – A unique stabilization concept with proprietary target acquisition, tracking algorithms and sophisticated computer vision capabilities that allow accurate hitting of static and moving targets. The system can utilize various types of weapons such as 5.56 – 7.62mm rifles, sniper rifles, 40mm grenade launches and others, providing tactical maneuvering forces with remote terrain dominance and pinpoint lethal accuracy.
Using advanced data processing, the AI system autonomously identifies and distinguishes between different types of targets, including individuals and vehicles, whether they are in motion or stationary. It can also determine if they have been previously present in the field.
Lightweight and thereby enabling long mission endurance, the Golden Eagle is extremely cost-effective, simple to operate, and easy to maintain.
The Black Eagle 50 (BE50) is a true game-changer for uncrewed operations, providing forces with the most cost-effective, superior-high-quality real-time ISR solution, over land and maritime domains, by enabling a unique combination of impressive covert flight endurance and an exceptionally versatile sensor suite. With its open architecture modular design, the BE50 accommodates the latest mission payloads, such as EO/IR, SAR, Maritime Patrol Radar (MPR), SIGINT, AIS receiver, tactical communication relay, cargo delivery and more.
With a near-to-zero operational, maintenance & logistic footprint, the BE50H provides wide-area persistent surveillance and coverage for long durations and has all the advantages of the rotary-UAS, such as persistent hovering, enabling additional concepts of operations for many mission applications.
Both systems withstand harsher weather conditions and can carry and fly with heavy and asymmetric payloads.
“Steadicopter is proud to introduce, for the first time in the United States, its advanced tactical unmanned helicopter platforms for precision sensor-to-shooter operation, with minimal collateral damage”, says Noam Lidor, VP Sales, Marketing & Business Development at Steadicopter.
“The company is a supplier of systems and services for the IDF and the Israeli Navy as well as for other customers around the world. We are eager to foster partnerships with various defense and HLS organizations in the United States as our systems are equipped with technologies tailored to the requirements of the U.S. Army, Navy, Marines, SOCOM and HLS users.”
