L-3 Unmanned Systems introduces its Airborne Pursuit and Exploitation (APEX) Small Tactical Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) at AUVSI 2014. L-3’s APEX UAS is a compact, lightweight system designed as a small tactical Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) platform, with a capacity to carry multiple payloads simultaneously. It is ideal for close-range ISR missions, first responder calls or over-the-hill reconnaissance missions, low-intensity conflicts and urban warfare operations. APEX is on display at the L-3 exhibit, booth 401.
“With APEX, we’re offering today’s warfighters an unprecedented level of capability from a small platform,” said J.R. Gear, Vice President of strategic development at L-3 Unmanned Systems. “APEX’s ability to be operated by a very small team and provide multi-mission and payload flexibility brings a new level of capability to expeditionary operators. The system is currently being used by US Forces.”
Based in Ashburn, VA/USA, L-3 Unmanned Systems is an industry leader in the design, development and manufacture of specialized Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), C4ISR collection and dissemination systems, and ruggedized command and control systems.
