Israel-based Aeronautics has won a contract worth $10 million to supply its Orbiter 2 and Orbiter 3 UAV to an unnamed South American country.
The contract includes providing maintenance and support services of the drones, Globes reported Tuesday.
The company signed a $8 million contract with an Asian country to supply Orbiter 3 drones about two weeks ago.
The Orbiter 2 has an endurance of 4 hours and operational range of 80 kilometers. Payload capacity is 1.5 kg. The Orbiter 3’s operational range is 100 kilometers and capable of flying for seven hours. A special launcher is used for Orbiter 3, which has a quiet electric engine that gives it the ability to perform secret missions. It lands using a parachute and an air cushion.
The Israeli Air Force (IAF) has grounded Hercules cargo planes and Boeing 707 planes used for airborne refuelling following investigation into an accident early this year in which a C-130 Hercules cargo plane rolled off runway. In January, the Lockheed Martin plane rolled approximately 100 meters into a ditch at the Nevatim Airbase in southern Israel, lightly injuring the two civilian workers
An electric-powered airplane christened “Alice,” capable of carrying nine passengers with a 650 miles range and having cruising speed of 276 mph has been unveiled at the Paris Air Show 2019 by its developer, Israeli firm, Eviation. “Operating at a fraction of the costs of conventional jetliners, our Alice will redefine how people travel regionally and usher in a new era of flying that is quieter, cleaner and cost effective,” Eviation CEO Omer Bar-Yohay said
