Procerus Technologies developed the five-pound vertical takeoff-and-landing drone for warfighters, first responders and other customers in the military, civil and commercial markets.
Lockheed says the quad rotor, dual-sensor platform provides aerial reconnaissance in urban areas, areas the company says fixed-wing drones are usually not able to access.
Through the Kestrel autopilot system, this UAV operates for up to 40 minutes and folds into a packable unit, the company says.
Lockheed announced in January it was acquiring Procerus, which specializes in micro UAS technology such as the Kestrel autopilot avionics system and a virtual cockpit for fixed-wing and rotary drones.
Procerus also makes small vertical takeoff-and-landing platforms and vision systems for target tracking, stabilization, geolocation and terminal guidance applications.
