Steadicopter – a frontrunner within the Rotary Unmanned Aerial Programs (RUAS) business, and BIRD Aerosystems – a world supplier of modern defence expertise and options that defend the air, sea, and land fleets of governments and associated businesses, are unveiling the Black Eagle 50H (BE50H) – a complicated hybrid unmanned helicopter, that includes a miniature airborne radar with superior proprietary expertise, to be used in maritime intelligence missions. Superior capabilities for lengthy endurance of as much as 5 hours, along with BIRD Aerosystems’ µMPR capabilities for the detection and monitoring of maritime vessels, allow the BE50H to hold out correct mapping of all vessels inside a radius of 200 km inside just a few hours, in harsh environmental circumstances, day or evening.

Ronen Issue, Co-CEO and Founding father of BIRD Aerosystems stated: “Superb for the safety of maritime borders and strategic belongings, BIRD’s modern µMPR cuts by means of sea muddle and considerably will increase mission effectiveness and price effectivity. Small and light-weight, it will possibly simply be put in on unmanned aerial techniques, resembling Steadicopter’s Black Eagle 50H, to create a cheap surveillance platform with glorious efficiency.”


“Maritime border safety is among the most outstanding wants on this planet at this time. The mix of the confirmed benefits of a hybrid unmanned helicopter system with lengthy flight endurance that allows protection of huge maritime surfaces, with radar capabilities for figuring out and finding hostile ships at ranges of a number of tens of kilometres, gives the vessel’s crew with an correct intelligence image inside a large radius of tons of of kilometres, thereby giving them a big benefit for mission success,” says Noam Lidor, VP Gross sales, Advertising & Enterprise Improvement at Steadicopter.

A real game-changer for uncrewed operations, the BE50H gives its customers with probably the most cost-effective resolution for each ISR and pinpoint CAS operations, in each the land and maritime domains, by enabling a novel mixture of spectacular flight endurance and an especially versatile sensor suite. With its open structure modular design, the BE50H accommodates the newest mission payloads, resembling BIRD Aerosystems’ µMPR. Coupled with the µMPR, the BE50H gives a first-ever mixture of a small tactical RUAS (with a near-to-zero operational, upkeep & logistic footprint), able to wide-area persistent surveillance and protection for lengthy durations on the one hand, with all some great benefits of the rotary-UAS, resembling persistent hovering, which allow extra ideas of operations for a lot of mission functions, on the opposite.

Implementing refined patented design options, along with highly effective sign processing algorithms, BIRD Aerosystems’ µMPR uniquely detects and tracks maritime vessels with 100% identification accuracy. Applied in a single small Line Replaceable Unit (LRU), the µMPR is extraordinarily light-weight, with very low energy consumption. It may be put in at the side of AIS and an electro-optical (EO/IR) payload, carry out automated cross-cues between the radar and the EO/IR sensor to verify goal identification, and mechanically inform floor management utilizing a exact geo-reference.
