Article Headlines
  • Elistair has announced that it has developed the Orion 2, a new UAS designed for military, government, and industry users
  • The hexacopter platform provides persistent round-the-clock surveillance for up to 24 hours at a time, which according to Elistair could previously only be done by much larger helium-filled tactical aerostats with complicated logistical trains
  • The lightweight, durable Orion 2 has been designed as a quick-deploy system, with an automated push-button takeoff and landing capability. It features a 330 foot (100 meter) micro-tether, providing greater altitude and surveillance coverage than its predecessor, and can carry up to 2kg (4.5 pounds) of payload
  • The system can serve simultaneously as an ISR and telecoms platform, stream georeferenced electro-optical and infrared imagery at the same time, and deploy 4G/5G communications nodes thanks to a new fiber optic cable option
