At just 23.5 pounds, this ultra-lightweight Group 2 aircraft is launchable by hand or bungee and provides up to 6.5 hours flight endurance, delivering Group 2 capabilities in a Group 1 footprint while stowed efficiently in a two-case mission packout. Puma LE is All Environment and provides an operational range of 60 km in land and maritime environments when used with our Long-Range Tracking Antenna. The secondary payload bay offers dedicated power and Ethernet, providing 3.4 lb of payload capacity in addition to the integrated Mantis i45 gimbaled EO/IR sensor and NVG-visible laser illuminator for expanded mission capabilities.

Interoperability with Puma All Environment UAS

By leveraging the existing Puma RQ-20B and Puma 3 Line Replaceable Units (LRUs), Puma LE allows any current Puma AE Family user to easily upgrade fielded systems.
