The V-150 sets the standard as a leading ITAR-free high performance UAS

The SKELDAR V-150 is a fully automated high-performance Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS) designed to support tactical operations for defence forces, coastguards, border patrol agencies, blue light forces, fire departments and drug interdiction agencies.

Operates
heavy fuel engine

The SKELDAR V-150 operates on a turbine engine propulsion system that uses heavy fuels. It has a current endurance of up to 2.5 hours with a 12kg payload, raising to 4 hours in the near future thanks to modifications already being worked on.

 

Multiple
payload

The V-150 incorporates two payload bays that includes up to 30kg in the main bay and up to 12kg in the nose. Within these, it provides a variety of payload options, including powerful Electro Optical and Infrared (EO/IR) sensors, hyperspectral and multispectral cameras for airborne remote sensing, LiDAR and a variety of small tactical synthetic aperture radars (SAR) for delivering real-time intelligence in all weather conditions.

 

V-150 is
ITAR-FREE

The V-150 is an ITAR-free (International Traffic in Arms Regulations) Remotely Piloted Aircraft or UAV. It is the perfect partner for the larger SKELDAR V-200.

         

Easy maintenance, low life-cycle costs, guaranteed

Developed with a low lifecycle cost in mind, the V-150’s modular design enables system customisation and functional development, with air maintenance carried out at unit level. Units can be accessed, removed and repaired in a very short timeframe during operations, a unique offering in the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) market.

 

Small logistical
footprint

The SKELDAR V-150 has a smaller logistical footprint in comparison to both its fixed-wing counterparts and other Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) platforms in the same category. For tactical operations, a two-person crew can be ready to fly the V-150 within 15 minutes from it being on site.

Land operations

For land-based missions including search and rescue for blue light forces, firefighting missions, emergency response and drug interdiction trafficking, the V-150 can be installed with a combination of Electro Optical/Infrared (EO/IR) and Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) sensors to enable the provision of critical mission intelligence in the fields of emergency and security. The SIGINT payload locates targets and forwards their location into the integrated mission management system while the high-quality EO/IR systems provides the imagery. Additionally, the V-150 can be equipped with a range of wide area motion imagery sensors to provide a detailed intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) picture of a large footprint in real-time supporting multiple agencies in their daily operations.

Maritime capabilities 

For maritime operations such as border patrol, sea surveillance, coastguard and naval operations, the SKELDAR V-150 can be equipped with a powerful Electro Optical/Infrared (EO/IR) sensor and a variety of small tactical synthetic aperture radars (SAR) for delivering real-time intelligence in all weather conditions, day and night. Strip map, spotlight and wide area operating modes enable operators to engage in high-level maritime surveillance and moving target detection.
