Innocon MicroFalcon UAV completes flight tests in extreme weather
HOLON, Israel, 8 Feb. 2012. Innocon's MicroFalcon miniature unmanned aerial system (UAS) has completed flight tests in extreme weather conditions, a snowstorm in cold temperatures (-15 degrees Celsius) and 35-knot wind velocity. Innocon's lightest unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) provides intelligence and surveillance information for defense and homeland security applications, including military over-the-hill missions. It features boxed-type wings with a belly-mounted payload, which contributes to high survivability and a fast redeployment time cycle.
"We are proud of the MicroFalcon mini UAV system. It has demonstrated its long-endurance, wide-area surveillance capability to detect targets in all operational environments--in any type of weather, day and night," says Michael Armon, Innocon's CEO.
The UAV is designed to provide around-the-clock coverage of the targeted area with its multi-UAV control capability. The multi-UAV function enables the operator to fly continuously over the target; both UAVs are controlled and monitored during the whole time from a single ground control station.
