Today, Aeryon Labs launched the Aeryon SKYRANGER small UAS (SUAS), a new VTOL system featuring an all-new airframe and integrated design, and representing a significant leap forward in capabilities for military, public safety, and commercial applications. With the completion of extensive field testing and first customer trials, the Aeryon SKYRANGER is now available for further demonstrations and orders - with priority to military and government customers worldwide.
Designed as software and payload platforms, Aeryon SUAS provide advanced features and capabilities including an intuitive touchscreen interface that provides simple point-and-click navigation and camera control, and seamless automated functions and safety features.
The Aeryon SKYRANGER brings new capabilities to the field-tested and battle-proven Aeryon SUAS platform, which has seen continuous development and innovation since the Aeryon SCOUT was launched in 2009.
“The Aeryon SUAS platform is the most mature, reliable, and capable system available on the market. With the Aeryon SKYRANGER we are again setting a new benchmark for system reliability and integration, flight endurance and performance, and advanced functionality while maintaining operator ease-of-use,” said Dave Kroetsch, Aeryon's President. “The Aeryon SCOUT remains an important part of Aeryon's product line - a high performance system at an attractive price point for public safety and commercial customers.”
Like the Aeryon SCOUT, SKYRANGER is a VTOL SUAS, ideal for providing continuous eyes-on-target for situational awareness, operations in confined environments, and low-risk launch and retrieval without peripheral equipment. SKYRANGER is ideally suited for both land and maritime military use including covert ISR, convoy and compound security, and ship boarding operations.
Selected key features of the Aeryon SKYRANGER include, up to 50-minute endurance with payload; folding design includes battery and payload for powered standby, and easy field component replacement in seconds, without tools; stabilised, simultaneously streaming dual EO/IR cameras; low-latency digital 256bit encrypted network with extensible range beyond 5km; high wind tolerance - 40mph (65kmh) sustained, 55mph (90kmh) gusts; ruggedised and weather-sealed; and single-operator touchscreen interface – point-and-click control, dynamic flight planning.
