High quality unmanned helicopter system with
superior endurance and payload capacity.
Missions are possible under difficult or dangerous circumstances (e.g. bad weather, darkness, flying over hostile or otherwise unsafe areas) when manned operations are not feasible.
Cost effective compared to a manned IFR/night VFR airborne solution.
Vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) capability of drone.
Feasible for covert operations due to low noise emission compared to manned systems.
Emergency gear can be airlifted to inaccessible/hazardous places.
Rapid deployment. System is ground transportable to venue of mission by means of a van or pick-up.
Set-up in 15 min by a crew of two people. Less skilled operating force required compared to manned systems.
