UAS: RQ-11B Raven®
The Raven system is the most widely deployed unmanned aircraft system in the world, ideal for low-altitude intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance missions that depend on rapid deployment and pinpoint maneuverability. Lightweight and simple to operate, the Raven is rucksack portable and can be hand-launched for day or night observation. The Raven has an optional stabilized gimbaled payload, and delivers real-time color and/or infrared imagery to the ground control and remote viewing stations.
Thanks to its advanced avionics, Raven can be operated manually or programmed for autonomous navigation. AeroVironment’s common GCS interfaces with all of its tactical ISR air vehicles reducing the level of training required and decreasing the time and cost involved.
