The unique modular design of the SKELDAR V-150 enables ease of transportability and accelerated maintenance. Its small logistical footprint can be halved for transport and storage thanks to an easily removable tail boom and rotor section. Routine engine overhauls and maintenance are carried out efficiently thanks to one easily removable engine and sub-frame Line Replaceable Unit (LRU).

Unmanned Helicopter Key Features
Nose and centre payload bays enable the SKELDAR V-150 to be equipped with a wide range of easily interchangeable payload configurations, including powerful Electro-Optical and Infrared (EO/IR) sensors in combination with long-range, SIGINT, WAMI, SAR, COMINT or LIDAR payloads.
Extensively tested to ensure maximum reliability and performance, the SKELDAR V-150 offers a best-in-class endurance time of five hours. Cruise speeds of up to 120 km/h, making it the preferred VTOL UAS for coastal border surveillance, blue force, and search operations.
Operable on Jet A-1, JP-5, and JP-8 Heavy Fuels (HF), the SKELDAR V-150’s powerplant options have been engineered from the ground up to align with single fuel objectives, making the system compatible within existing operating infrastructures.
Fully Automatic Take-off and Landing (ATOL) combined with a host of mission automation features allow the Pilot in Command (PIC) and payload operator to focus on safely providing the critical intelligence needed to support vital mission objectives.
As an agnostic platform, the V-150 is an open architecture to numerous sensor combinations supporting role change payloads. Depending on mission needs, Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) high-resolution Electro-Optical/Infrared (EO/IR), Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR), Electronic Warfare (EW) sensors and other mission-specific payloads are offered.
- Night & Day Electro-Optical/Infrared (EO/IR) Sensors
Radar & LiDAR options including:
- Synthetic Aperture Radars (SAR)
- Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR)
Electronic Warfare (EW) payloads:
- Communication Monitoring and Intelligence (COMINT)
- Radar Emitting Sensing Equipment (RADINT)
- Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR)
Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR)
Equipped with an Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) payload, the SKELDAR V-150 provides Ground Moving Target Indicator (GMTI) capabilities and superior imaging enabling high precision ground-mapping and surveillance to take place in all weather conditions. The SAR unit’s low weight enables installation in combination with EO/IR payloads.
Modular and Intuitive RPS Solutions
User friendly and easy to integrate, UMS SKELDAR can provide a full range of Remote Pilot Stations (RPS) including man portable, on and off-road vehicle-mounted and intermodal container systems. Our professional and dedicated team of engineers can integrate an RPS into existing mobile or stationary infrastructure.
Equipment & Serviceability
The SKELDAR V-150 is supplied with all necessary ground support equipment including a ground vaentilator, power unit, generator, refueling system, fire extinguisher, ground-handling wheels, and all required tools.
Class Leading Serviceability
UMS SKELDAR’s UA’s achieve high Times Between Overhauls (TBO) thanks to superior engine longevity and the use of high-grade components throughout. Routine service procedures can be carried out by technicians in the field without the need for special tools or equipment.
Skid-mounted ground-handling wheels enable efficient pre-deployment maneuverability, preparation, and transportation. Lockable with two pins, ground-handling wheel installation and removal takes seconds and requires minimum effort.
Engine Servicing & Overhauls
The SKELDAR V-150 introduces the industry’s first and only thirty minute engine removal and replacement system. The engine Line Replacement Unit (LRU) can be exchanged by technicians in the field without the need for special tools or equipment.
