Lockheed Martin has added a tethering option to its quadrotor unmanned aerial system offering designed for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions.

The tethered Indago 3 UAS works to reduce the unit's reliance on battery power and allows configuration by special operations forces, Lockheed said Monday.

The aircraft's payload is designed to help operators access high-resolution, electro-optical and infrared imagery.

For nighttime missions, the quadrotor uses a thermal infrared technology to identify a weapon, person an other potential intelligence.
