SpearUAV Ltd., a pioneering force in the realm of autonomous, AI-driven technology for encapsulated Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), proudly introduces the Multi Canister Launcher (MCL) Viper. This innovative system redefines the concept of launching VIPER 300 Systems while in motion, from any military manned or unmanned platform. The MCL Viper offers a flexible, customizable configuration, accommodating four or more canisters, and seamlessly integrates with a wide range of military platforms and vehicles. This groundbreaking launcher not only enhances operational agility but also prioritizes operator safety and the well-being of vehicle crew members. The MCL Viper boasts the remarkable capability to launch multiple VIPER systems concurrently or sequentially, empowering tactical units with real-time Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition, and Reconnaissance (ISTAR) capabilities. Additionally, it offers precision attack capabilities complemented by Electronic Warfare (EW) measures. The system’s design ensures operator safety, situational awareness, and mission success, supporting both Swarm and unitary modes of operation.
Yiftach Kleinman, EVP Commercial at Spear UAV, explains, “At Spear, we have recognized the complicated challenges associated with SWAP (Size, Weight, and Power) allocation within military platforms, coupled with the crucial need to enhance tactical forces with advanced capabilities. Spear’s proven expertise in encapsulating Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) and executing missions seamlessly from a diverse array of platforms, including submarines and Infantry Fighting Vehicles (IFVs), drives the development of the MCL Viper. This innovative solution is poised to empower the entire VIPER 300 family of capabilities, catering to units ranging from squads and platoons to companies and battalions. Military forces can now leverage the advantages of unitary or SWARM capabilities, encompassing hovering, speed, compactness, and cost-effectiveness, with the ability to engage and eliminate pinpoint targets either kinetically or electronically. SpearUAV, known for its unique encapsulated drone technology, continues to pioneer advancements in the field of unmanned aerial systems and aerial weapon systems. The launch of the MCL Viper underlines the company’s ongoing commitment to shaping the future of defense technology, introducing innovative solutions that redifine battlefield dynamics.”
The VIPER 300 family marks a paradigm shift in tactical warfare, encompassing three distinct capabilities: ISR, Loitering Munition, and EW. This state-of-the-art encapsulated precision strike hovering munition is optimized for engaging stationary and moving targets within Line of Sight (LOS) and Beyond Line of Sight (BLOS) scenarios, all within a tactical distance. Tailored to meet the needs of maneuvering forces, including dismounted soldiers and various platforms, the VIPER 300 guarantees a user-friendly experience, allowing real-time and on-demand launches by a single operator. Its compact and lightweight design ensures ease of use and agility. Enhanced by AI-based features such as autonomous target classification and tracking (ATR) and About/Wave-off capability, the VIPER 300 elevates precision and battlefield effectiveness to unparalleled levels. With its remarkable versatility and precision, the VIPER 300 sets a new standard for tactical engagements, significantly amplifying operational efficiency for military personnel.
