Centaur Optionally Piloted Aircraft (OPA)

The Centaur is a multi-mission OPA/RPA optimized for multi-domain ISR and designed to support fully piloted, remotely piloted or hybrid flight operations. Based on a highly fuel-efficient twin engine aircraft design, the Centaur can fly for more than 16 hours at altitudes of up to 25,000 feet, and features high levels of safety and redundancy for operations in both controlled and uncontrolled airspace.

The aircraft can be equipped with a wide variety of payloads, including EO/IR cameras, SAR (synthetic aperture radar) and multispectral sensors. It can be used for a wide variety of use cases, including defense, law enforcement, environmental research, R&D, and flight testing of new sensor technologies or uncrewed operations.
