Vec­tor Hawk SUAS fea­tures mul­ti­ple mis­sion ca­pa­bil­ity

SP's MAI - - UNMANNED -

De­signed for ver­sa­til­ity and af­ford­abil­ity, the new Lock­heed Martin Vec­tor Hawk ad­dresses a broad set of unique mis­sions and op­er­at­ing needs within a sin­gle sys­tem. With a gross take-off weight of only four pounds and a ver­ti­cal pro­file of only four inches, Vec­tor Hawk boasts best-in-class pay­load ca­pac­ity, speed and en­durance.

“We are proud to deliver Vec­tor Hawk, a wa­ter­proof sys­tem that pro­vides leading edge multi-mis­sion ca­pa­bil­i­ties in all en­vi­ron­ments,” said Kevin West­fall, Di­rec­tor of Un­manned So­lu­tions at Lock­heed Martin’s Mis­sion Sys­tems and Train­ing busi­ness. “The Vec­tor Hawk can be field re­con­fig­ured to mul­ti­ple mis­sions in­clud­ing fixed-wing, ver­ti­cal take-off and land­ing (VTOL), and tilt-ro­tor en­abling VTOL with tran­si­tion to fixed-wing flight. Our fixed-wing vari­ants may be hand or tube launched, and VTOL and tilt-ro­tor vari­ants may be launched from land or wa­ter sur­faces.”

Vec­tor Hawk fea­tures fully au­ton­o­mous flight, land­ing and fail-safes. It is in­audi­ble at op­er­a­tional slant ranges. The data link fea­tures a high band­width soft­ware de­fined ra­dio, mesh net­work­ing (in­clud­ing 3G, 4G, and LTE cel­lu­lar), over-the-air re­con­fig­u­ra­tion, and is ca­pa­ble of em­ploy­ing a va­ri­ety of wave­forms. With an open ar­chi­tec­ture, re­con­fig­urable vari­ants, adapt­able data link, and scal­able pay­load, Vec­tor Hawk is en­gi­neered for un­matched ca­pa­bil­ity.
