SKELDAR V-200 Unmanned Aerial Vehicle

Maritime ready, heavy fuel, ITAR free VTOL UAV

SKELDAR V-200 VTOL UAS

The SKELDAR V-200 Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) is a flexible, versatile platform that is ideal for both land and sea operations. The fully automated VTOL aircraft features open interfaces to BMS and C4ISR systems and is 4865 STANAG compliant, making it easy to implement on board any maritime vessel for applications such as Reconnaissance, Identification, Target Acquisition and Electronic Warfare.

The SKELDAR V-200 incorporates an advanced heavy kerosene-based fuel engine, providing additional landing and take-off assurance in environments where conventional fuels are prohibited.

It can field a wide variety of payloads, including Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) high resolution Electro Optical/Infrared (EO/IR), Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), LiDAR, and Electronic Warfare (EW) sensors.

Land UAS Solutions

Our highly flexible UAV platforms can be deployed in a wide variety of land-based roles, including:

Law Enforcement

UAVs can efficiently and accurately monitor land and borders, even at night, to better target specific areas in which criminal activity is taking place, providing a constant ‘eye in the sky’ presence.

UAVs for Law Enforcement of Borders

UAS Military Security SolutionsSecurity

We manage and deliver complete UAV programmes designed to provide all the necessary capabilities required to effectively tackle crime, reduce threat and maintain security.

Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance
UAS ISR Training
Multiple UAVs can be flown simultaneously on the same Ground Control Station (GCS) to provide data for both military and civilian ISR requirements. We provide ISR training courses with qualified instructors to suit your needs.

LiDAR Mapping
LIDAR UAS Mapping

Our drones can conduct LiDAR mapping over any area where data gathering is required, saving time and providing increased visibility for applications such as pipeline, transmission line and highway and railway corridor surveys, and coastal, forestry and flood plain surveys.

Drone Infrastructure InspectionsInfrastructure Inspections

UAVs facilitate fast, real-time and accurate surveying of hard-to-reach infrastructures such as turbines, mines and nuclear enclosures, saving time and money and reducing risks.
