UAS Advanced Development:
The Wasp Micro Air Vehicle (MAV) has built upon the technology amassed from the earlier DARPA Black Widow MAV program. With a wingspan of 41 cm and a weight of 275 grams, the Wasp is AeroVironment’s smallest UAS. Wasp can be manually operated or programmed for GPS-based autonomous navigation.
To ensure system interoperability, Wasp uses the same advanced technology found in other AeroVironment’s UAS, such as Raven RQ-11A and Puma, and is controllable through a common Ground Control Station.
