Innocon wins Indian order for Micro Falcon UAV
Israels Innocon has won a order from an Indian law enforcement agency to deliver its Micro Falcon unmanned air vehicle.
The manufacturer has teamed with an Indian partner, complying with the terms of New Delhi's "Make in India" procurement policy, Innocon's chief executive Zvika Nave was quoted as saying by Flight Global Wednesday.
The Micro Falcon has a flight endurance of more than 3h, and can be operated by one person.
With a maximum take-off weight of 5kg (11b), the UAV carries a belly-mounted electro-optical/infrared payload. It is recovered by a parachute that returns the air vehicle to the ground on its back, to protect its sensor package.
The Micro Falcon is also equipped with a data link which enables a communication range of 16nm (30km).
The UAV was also recently selected by an undisclosed European country, which will use the system for training purposes.
The MicroFalcon is a small Miniature UAV produced by Innocon in Israel. The UAV typically operates at altitudes of 500-2000 feet, and speeds of 20-40 knots.
Further, it uses the a lightweight, compact sensor package, similar to that used by the Elbit Skylark. MicroFalcon weighs 6-10kg and has 2-3 hour endurance.
