Lockheed Martin has designed four-rotor unmanned aerial system (UAS), Indago 3, to boost military intelligence operations.
A new four-rotor unmanned aerial system (UAS) enables US and other military forces to securely complete sensitive intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) missions.
“The newest version of Lockheed Martin’s Indago quadrotor unmanned aerial system (UAS), Indago 3 now enables military customers to securely complete sensitive ISR missions with the addition of TrellisWare Technologies MANET software products,” the company announced Monday.
The enhanced Indago 3 system offers improved propulsion technology for reduced noise signature and extended flight time, a military-grade encrypted and secure data link, secure video dissemination across multi-node networks and long-range radio distance operations at low-altitudes, the company said.
Indago 3 has a flight time of up to 50 minutes, a range of 10 kilometers (six miles) and a cruise speed of 25 mph and can operate at temperatures as low as 30-degrees Fahrenheit below zero, and as high as 120 degrees Fahrenheit.
