The SkyRaider® is an advanced heavy payload unmanned aircraft. It is an optionally-piloted vehicle (OPV) that has three flexible options: manned only, unmanned only, or unmanned and optionally piloted. Its canard design is more stable and maneuverable than other unmanned aircraft. Constructed of composite materials, it is easier to modify, and therefore, easier to install more sensors and payloads on the SkyRaider®. The vehicle is based on a proven composite aircraft design, which has been through rigorous load tree analysis and wind tunnel testing.
The SkyRaider® operates in a wider flight regime and offers the following benefits:
The SkyRaider® is designed for low and medium-altitude, long endurance missions. It is ideal for persistent intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) operations, battle damage assessments and communications relay roles to address a wide array of Department of Defense and Department of Homeland Security mission sets.
The SkyRaider® can lift more than its own weight and its flexible platform features can be tailored to meet a wide range of persistent heavy lift requirements.
The SkyRaider® is fully integrated with Proxy’s Universal Distributed Management System (UDMS™) for carrying out complex cooperative missions.
