The uprated MUSECO (multisensor Copter) prototype completed a successful test flight in December 2012. The MUSECO is based on the NEO S-350 VTOL UAV built by Swiss UAV AG and was developed in close co-operation between the two companies.
“This successful test flight shows the result of close collaboration between SWISS UAV and EMT. We are pleased to offer customers new, flexible options with additional platform options. Operators of the tactical LUNA system can now choose between the MUSECO helicopter or the fixed-wing Luna UAV.” says Sascha Lange, who is responsible for business development at EMT.
The LUNA system has been supporting Bundeswehr Intelligence and Reconnaissance (ISR) operations abroad. By continually optimising the performance of sensors, data analysis capability, range and endurance, the LUNA UAV is now more effective and efficient.
