droneAltavian will integrate Lockheed Martin‘s gimbaled sensor payloads into the U.S. Army‘s RQ-20 Puma small unmanned aircraft systems under a $4 million subcontract.

The Procerus Technologies Perceptor imaging sensor works to provide pilots stabilization and sharper images, dual-band imaging and laser illumination systems, Lockheed said Thursday.

“Its advanced imaging and stabilization will enhance operations such as gathering intelligence, providing situational awareness, and keeping the warfighter out of harm’s way,” said Kevin Westfall, director of unmanned solutions for Lockheed’s mission systems and training business.

Altavian and Lockheed Martin jointly developed the Puma Perceptor payload and the technology has completed a series of Army tests.
