Predator B – UAV

 

The Predator B aircraft was developed in 2000 with first flight commencing in February 2001. Powered by a turboprop engine, the Predator B series was designed as a long-endurance, high-altitude unmanned aircraft for use as a multi-mission system by a variety of customers. From reconnaissance, surveillance, targeting, and weapons delivery to scientific research and other civilian applications, Predator B has the capacity to conduct multiple missions simultaneously due to its large internal and external payload capacity.

Features:

  • Redundant, fault-tolerant avionics
  • Remotely piloted or fully autonomous
  • SAR, EO/IR and ESM payload capacity
  • GPS and INS
  • UHF/VHF voice
  • 6 wing stations for external carriage of payloads
