Lockheed Martin has integrated a TrellisWare Technologies-made software platform into a quadrotor unmanned aerial system designed for military intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions.
The Indago 3 UAS is equipped with TrellisWare’s TW-600 Ocelot module as well as an updated propulsion technology, a military-grade data link, a mechanism for video dissemination and an extended-range radio system, Lockheed said Monday.
“We are pleased to partner with Lockheed Martin to help enhance Indago 3“™s airborne networking in challenging environments,” said Matt Fallows, director of applications and systems at TrellisWare.
Fallows added the Ocelot module features the TSM mobile ad-hoc network radio technology.
Indago is built to operate for up to 50 minutes at a speed of 25 miles per hour in low- or high-temperature environments.
Lockheed’s Procerus Technologies business serves as the original equipment manufacturer of Indago UAS.
