Blackwing

Adaptability is the key to Blackwing's design. With its built-in secure Digital Data Link (DDL™), Blackwing can deliver cross-domain command-and-control relay operations among undersea and surface vessels and unmanned underwater vehicles, and is interoperable with our family of UAS. It incorporates an advanced, miniature electro-optical and infrared sensor for rapid-response intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, and the modular payload bay enables a range of mission objectives. Blackwing can be deployed from a submerged submarine using an underwater-to-surface delivery canister or a surface ship or mobile ground vehicle via tube or multipack launcher. Its small size and quiet motor make it difficult to detect, recognize, or track, even at close range.

Rapid Maritime Deployment

Blackwing is virtually undetectable and can be deployed quickly from a submerged submarine using an underwater-to-air delivery canister or ship surface/mobile ground vehicle via tube or Multipack Launcher (MPL).

Rapid Reponse ISR

The advanced, miniature Electro-Optical and Infrared (EO/IR) sensor provides operators with real-time video for situational awareness and feature/object recognition.

Cross-Domain Connectivity

Built-in secure Digital Data Link (DDL™) delivers cross-domain Command and Control (C2) relay operations between undersea and surface vessels, and Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUVs).

Optional Launch Platforms

Undersea, Surface Vessel, Unmanned Underwater Vehicle (UUV)
