Airlogix is a leading developer of innovative UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) solutions for both civilian and military applications. UST is delighted to welcome Airlogix on board as a supplier partner, and we will be highlighting their unique solutions and capabilities across our channels over the next 12 months.

We’ve just launched Airlogix’ UST supplier profile, which has been written and built by our team in collaboration with the company. The Silver profile showcases their tactical fixed-wing GOR platform, which has been specially designed to gather real-time ISR (intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance) data in highly demanding environments, and has been developed in conjunction with active military units.

tactical fixed-wing isr droneGOR delivers mission endurances of up to 4 hours with ranges of up to 260 kilometers. With fully electric propulsion, it provides significantly reduced thermal and acoustic signatures for enhanced stealth.

The versatile UAV is catapult-launched and can perform repeated belly landings without damage to the drone or payloads, thanks to the rugged Kevlar and carbon fiber construction. The aircraft can be completely assembled with minimal training in under a minute, and can be fully prepared for deployment in just ten minutes.

x80 camera payloadGOR can be equipped with a choice of three different camera gimbals from leading developer NextVision, making it suited to a wide range of mission requirements day or night. Options include EO/IR gimbals with 40x optical and 2x digital zoom or 20x optical and 2x digital zoom, and an EO-only gimbal with 40x optical and 2x digital zoom.

tactical UAS for ISRGOR features a robust communications system that has been designed with input from leading experts in electronic warfare (EW) and signals intelligence (SIGINT). It utilizes eight preset channels, enabling the use of FHSS (frequency hopping spread spectrum) for enhanced security and resilience against interference and jamming. Alongside this primary link, a backup system runs simultaneously, providing the critical redundancy required for the drone to complete its mission under almost any circumstances.

The UAS also incorporates a backup navigation system that enables the aircraft to continue navigation with high accuracy even when GPS signals have been jammed or are otherwise unavailable.

The complete UAS includes a rugged GCS (ground control station) consisting of two separate secure laptops for UAV and payload control, as well as a high-reliability antenna system that ensures continued communications between aircraft and ground even in highly contested environments.

A portable handheld controller is also provided, allowing complete control of the aircraft throughout all phases of flight.
