Article Headlines
  • Steadicopter unveils the Black Eagle 25E and Black Eagle 50E – the newest models of its RUAV – now operated with electric motors
  • Converting Steadicopter’s Black Eagle 50 system to an electric-powered engine has significantly reduced the weight of the air vehicle, enabling additional, much required, payload capacity for a variety of missions
  • Weighing only 18 kg as a platform, each model has the capacity to carry additional batteries for longer flights, heavier payloads and more
  • The Black Eagle 25E is designed for weights of up to 25 kg, making it suitable for tactical-urban missions, while meeting the strictest weight and category regulations
  • The Black Eagle 50E, weighing up to 35 kg, enables the best-in-class flight envelope with a wide range of mission payloads, giving the user the highest level of mission versatility for covert operations
  • With a zero-logistic footprint, the Black Eagle 25E and 50E are the perfect fit for the ever-important maritime domain. The small dimensions of the platform within the small-tactical unmanned aerial systems (STUAS) allow for efficient and safe operation
  • All Black Eagle systems are certified for use in the harshest maritime operating scenarios, according to the IP67 environmental standards
  • Powered by electric engines, these models are extremely cost effective, simple to operate, easy to maintain and, with no need for fuel storage, both environmentally friendly and safe
Overview & Comments
  • As Israel is a UAS powerhouse on technology & know-how, Steadicopter is the only Israeli based small tactical RUAV manufacturer
  • This category of systems is an extremely interesting one as the general notion was that unmanned small tactical rotary UAS are irrelevant due to the rise of multi-rotor drones and hybrid fixed wing / VTOL
  • However, due to the rise of these systems, which are great at their niche of missions, the advantages of the single rotor systems are now better understood
  • In general, their ability to carry a 5 kg payload for up to 4 hours when compared to multi-rotor drones, and hover for extensive periods of time when compared to the hybrid systems enable them to meet the requirement of specific mission needs
