General Atomics’ aeronautical systems business is showcasing the U.S. Army’s two Gray Eagle Extended Range unmanned aircraft systems that were modified to incorporate multi-domain operation capabilities.
The demonstration, which began in March, is part of the service branch’s current efforts to enhance the GE-ER platform with MDO features, General Atomics said Tuesday.
MDO capabilities such as long-range sensors, navigation systems and rapid integration of advanced sensors and payloads suited for specific missions are being highlighted in the demo.
The Eagle-Eye multi-mode radar was built by General Atomics Aeronautical Systems to offer increased performance and seamless integration with other payloads.
GA-ASI President David Alexander said the Eagle-Eye has a data location capability that is intended to enhance the ground tactical commander’s situational awareness.
