Bengaluru (Karnataka) [India], Feb 20 (ANI): Cyient Solutions & Systems on Wednesday launched its WanderB vertical take-off and landing unmanned aerial system for land and maritime operations that can operate even in strong winds and harsh weather conditions.
Equipped with two batteries, Wanders VTOL overcomes take-off and landing space limitations. Its advanced operational capabilities make it a versatile solution for military, peacekeeping, low-intensity conflict resolution, law enforcement, disaster management and commercial applications.
The system is being showcased at Aero India 2019 from February 20-24. It is an electric mini-UAS specially optimised for covert over-the-hill operations, supporting extensive day and night ISR missions.
It combines the advantages of fixed-wing operation with vertical take-off and landing, supporting significant range, endurance and speed.
WanderB offers tactical advantage to defence, paramilitary and security forces for real-time critical intelligence gathering and surveillance. The system offers high operational availability of two-and-a-half hours and has a mission range of 50 km (extendable up to 80 km).
Cyient Solutions & Systems is a joint venture between Hyderabad-based Cyient Ltd and BlueBird Aero Systems of Israel.
