Rugged components designed to operate in adverse weather and harsh saltwater conditions, ship-based Automatic Take-off, and Landing (ATOL), ship-specific Remote Pilot Station (RPS) integration options, multiple payloads carrying capability and a dependable heavy fuel engine are just some of the features to make the V-200 the ultimate NATO-aligned rotary platform.

Unmanned VTOL System Key Features
Ship-based Automatic Take-off and Landing (ATOL) enables landings on dynamic surfaces such as pitching and rolling ship helidecks. Independent positioning assistance enables the V-200 to land in twenty-five knot winds (NATO Sea State 3-4) as well as in reduced visibility conditions such as nighttime, fog, and heavy rain.
The V-200’s compact size allows for a minimum amount of space to be occupied allowing for efficient transportation and storage. Modular design and easily removable access panels allow for efficient routine maintenance and inspections as well as payload reconfigurations.
From the start, redundancy has been engineered into every aspect of our system. Features such as redundant power and fuel systems, a dual-core FCU and strong datalinks enable the V-200 to remain airborne should an emergency occur.
Heavy Fuel Engine
Designed to operate on kerosene-based Jet A-1, JP-5 and JP-8 fuels, the V-200’s Hirth direct-injected parallel-twin two-stroke engine sets the benchmark for efficiency and dependability. High-grade components provide excellent reliability and prolong Times Between Overhauls (TBO).

Central PositionTactical Multi-Intelligence (Multi-INT) & Synthetic Apereature Radar (SAR)
Long Range Data LinkRange 100 km+
As an agnostic platform, the V-200 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)
EW and Radar Sensing Payload Benefits
Today’s Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) operate in a complex and multifaceted signals environment. Equipping the V-200 with EW or Radar Emitting Sensing payloads enables the interception, locating, detection, disruption and jamming of signals from potential threats. Situational awareness is heightened and response times from air, sea or land-based forces are reduced.
Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR)
Featuring an under-belly mounted steerable beam antenna and a high-performance Ground Moving Target Indicator (GMTI), Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) provides reliable high-resolution all-weather day or night intelligence gathering, ground mapping and surveillance capabilities. High reliability and operational availability are achieved by using numerous solid states Transmit/ Receive Modules within a fixed array. The system’s low power consumption, low weight and compact size make SAR installations in combination with Electro-Optical/Infra-Red (EO/IR) sensors and other payloads possible.
Key SAR features:
- Moving Target Indicator (MTI)
- Wide Area Coverage

NATO Compliant & Certified
Reliable Data Link
Modular and Intuitive
Our Remote Pilot Station (RPS) has been designed to reduce fatigue by providing the highest level of operator comfort. An ergonomic design and an intuitive operator terminal provide excellent mission situational awareness, operational efficiency, and the highest levels of flight safety.
Alongside an extensive range of vehicle-mounted and land-based RPS options, ship-specific RPS integration options are offered, making the V-200 the perfect platform for ship-based operations. UMS Skeldar can facilitate RPS integrations into existing specific operational infrastructure (e.g. vehicles, ships).
