The Skylark I-LE Block II UAV

Elbit Systems of America, a wholly owned subsidiary of Elbit System, will introduce the Skylark I-LE Block II UAV and its capabilities at the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International’s (AUVSI’s) Unmanned Systems North America 2012 conference in Las Vegas, Nevada, August 6-9, 2012.

The Skylark I-LE Block II has an operational range up to 15 km, maintains approximately 3 hours of endurance and is designed to perform in harsh environments such as high altitudes and gusting winds.

Malcolm Quon, Vice President of UAS Dynamics, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Elbit Systems of America, said, “Our legacy Skylark systems have accumulated over 25,000 operational flight hours. By incorporating a new engine and power system, as well as the highest performance Day/Night payload in Tier I SUAS class, the Skylark Block II offers more mission flexibility, enabling to fly higher without degradation of imagery. Our goal at Elbit Systems of America is to provide innovative solutions that protect and save lives. The Skylark I-LE Block II does just that”.
