SKELDAR V-200 CIVIL SECURITY
UNMANNED, VERSATILE & MISSION READY
Information is a powerful asset in any mission. Skeldar, a medium-range UAV system, can hover for hours while providing real-time information to a control station or to remote video terminal.
It is fully autonomous, commanded by high-level-commands such as “Point and Fly” and “Point and Look”, and designed for a range of land, maritime and civil applications.
Ease of Operation
High level of autonomy for air vehicle/payload management and a modern graphical user interface makes SKELDAR easy to operate.
Launch and recovery requires only minimum logistics. High Autonomy during take off, flight and landing necessitates high safety.
ASSESS, REACT, SAVE LIVES
By assessing what situation lies ahead, Search and Rescue teams can make the best possible decisions to save lives. Skeldar provides teams with situational awareness by searching an area for those who may be in danger and hard to reach.
With the ability to be rapidly det.ployed, the next generation UAS is designed to provide real-time intelligence and surveillance in order to assess the situation. The compact solution can also fly in conditions that would hamper traditional aircraft.
With its agile flight performance and ability to stay in the air for several hours, Skeldar gets you closer to the action allowing you to see, act and save lives.
The Skeldar system consists of two air vehicles and a mobile UAS Control Station. Based on operational and technical requirements, the system may be integrated into a wide variety of segments and system environments utilising a common control concept and user interface in the context of command, control and payload management.
Seeing is believing
The Skeldar system is designed so it can easily be
certified for all airspace classifications.
Launch and recovery requires only a minimum of personnel and preparation. Combining a modular design, short turnaround time, built in test functionality and a multiple choice of payloads increases Skeldar’s high availability.
Easy to operate
Autonomy and precise manoeuvrability during takeoff & landing necessitates high safety. Skeldar can hover in the air for hours, providing real-time information to your control station and remote video terminals.
Cost effectiveness with low life cycle costs
Skeldar is designed with the aim of substantially reducing the logistical footprint. To simplify maintenance operations and reduce costs, for example, the equipment compartments are easily accessible via panels that can be quickly opened and closed.
Civil Security Operations
Integration of Skeldar® UAS on fire-fighter vehicles, in the police force and border control units will add great value to your ability to perform civil security operations. With Skeldar’s relative speed and agile flight envelope, imagery intelligence can be collected at long & short range. In this aspect, Skeldar® UAS is an asset with unique characteristics for providing real-time observations and for gaining situational awareness.
The characteristics of the Skeldar air vehicle allow it to approach danger zones or targets of interest with good stand-off range. The performance and features of the mission payload provides high resolution imagery that is ideal for search & rescue, surveillance, forest fire assessment and border patrol missions, as well as a broad range of other missions.
Civil Security Operations and System Integration
The Skeldar® UAS has a modular design, which makes it possible to integrate the system into the customer’s preferred choice of vehicle. The Skeldar® UAS is a highly capable system, and the system can be operated by just 2-4 people, owing to the ease of use, no take-off and landing equipment, and the low logistical footprint.
For long range and overseas transportation, ISO 20 ft containers are used to transport the Skeldar system. The tail of the Air Vehicle is easily attachable and detachable for minimising the required transportation volume. Furthermore, the main rotor blades are easily removed and attached.
Customer demonstrations and flight tests
A team of Saab support personnel performs customer demonstrations where we show our UAS capabilities. The demonstrations highlight the ease of operation with high-level-commands such as “Point and Fly” and “Point and Look”. Applications such as surveillance, reconnaissance, identification and operational efficiency are demonstrated.
The Skeldar unmanned system is designed for international use, implementing the relevant interoperability standards. The modular design enables easily interchangeable payloads to support a variety of missions.
