Long-Range UAS – Raybird 3

Small UAS for long-distance missions: ISTAR, SAR and emergency response

Raybird-3 Long-Endurance UAS and GCS

The Raybird 3 is a small, fixed-wing UAV designed for long-range, huge-area reconnaissance and patrolling missions. The drone can operate for more than 24 hours, carry a payload of up to 5kg, and transmit video across 100+ km, making it the ideal choice for large-area operations in varying conditions, such as: ISTAR (intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition, and reconnaissance), search and rescue (SAR), and other missions requiring real-time situational awareness.

Raybird-3 Long-Endurance Drone

The man-portable one-box solution with fully autonomous operation including takeoff, landing and payload control.

The four-stroke gasoline engine-powered platform provides more than 24 hours of flight endurance for long-distance drone missions, and can be easily programmed with preset flight routes and an automatic return-to-launch point.

Payload Solutions for the Raybird 3 Long Range Fixed Wing Drone

With a modular payload system and a lift capacity of up to 5kg, the Raybird 3 can be easily equipped with a variety of sensors for flexible and versatile operation, including gyro-stabilised gimbals, aerial cameras, synthetic aperture radar (SAR), radio relays and electronic warfare (EW) equipment.

Raybird 3 systems can be easily customised during manufacture to your specific needs, as well as easily upgraded as your requirements evolve.

high endurance drone with airbag

The Raybird 3 fixed-wing drone can be launched by catapult from almost any terrain, and recovered by parachute and airbag. Sensitive gimbals and payloads are further protected by a special retraction mechanism, and the aircraft features redundant servos and other important components for enhanced reliability. An encrypted digital data link provides security against electronic attacks.

Professional UAV Training Course

uav training

uav-trainingOur specially designed professional drone operator training course provides attendees with an understanding of the regulatory frameworks surrounding UAS operation and how they apply to defense and commercial applications. In addition, the course explores operational and technical aspects of drone operations, as well as the risk-based processes underpinning the application and granting of authorizations for UAS flights.

The four-week training program consists of three parts – a theoretical phase, a practical phase, and a series of training flights. The program culminates in a final exam, the successful completion of which will grant attendees an official operator certificate.

Key topics covered by our professional UAV training course include:

  • Applications of UAS in the context of international aviation law
  • Accommodating UAS operations within current aviation infrastructure
  • Typical use cases
  • General information about technical characteristics and servicing of the UAV
  • The requirement for operators to demonstrate flight safety, and how this is achieved
  • Implementation of technologies to help manage risks and hazards
  • Preparing an environment for safe operation
