Israel’s SpearUAV has disclosed development of Ninox unmanned aircraft system (UAS) designed to deliver organic and immediate intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition, and reconnaissance (ISTAR) tactical superiority for strategic, tactical, and micro-tactical missions. This micro-tactical drone system was specifically designed for single-user operation and can be launched manually or from a standard 40 mm. grenade launcher. Sitting in the barrel, it’s ready for launch in seconds.
Featuring an encapsulated drone and control unit, the Ninox 40 weighs under 250g – within regulatory limitations – and is lightweight enough to be incorporated into the soldier’s vest and carried on the person during combat. Build to withstand harsh battle conditions, the ruggedized system is ideal for tactical urban environments. The Ninox 40 has up to 40- minutes’ flight capacity, extensive ISTAR capabilities, a day and night camera for enhanced situational awareness, automatic tracking, and can be launched on the move and from under cover.
Spear’s Ninox Unmanned Aircraft System family of solutions create new dimensions for managing today’s battlefield. By focusing on the real operational needs of troops, this advanced, ruggedized solution provides the end-user with tools that are accessible, intuitive and simple to operate, and is the most effective way to achieve immediate tactical superiority. Suitable for launch from air, sea and land, Ninox provides strategic, tactical and micro-tactical solutions with the capacity to carry a range of specialized payloads serving various missions.
