Description: The Silver Fox unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) is aimed at providing the US Navy with a small, lightweight, inexpensive, expendable airborne asset that will fly autonomously for long durations at 60 knots (110 kph). The Silver Fox engine will run on JP-8/JP-5 fuel. The sensor packages intended for this aircraft weigh up to 4-pound (2 kg). Each platform will provide low cost surveillance imaging transmitted back to the control station that will be able to simultaneously operate up to 10 units.

The Silver Fox vehicles incorporate a "plug-and-play" modular design with many easily interchangeable components/modules such as wings, motor modules, control modules and mission payload modules. A whole Silver Fox system can be packed into a single 60x24x15 (152x61x38 cm) case. A launch pneumatic catapult is required in order to get the Silver Fox airborne and the payload consists of a FLIR. Other improved models are being developed by Advanced Ceramics Research, for example Silver Fox Block B, with greater flight endurance, payload, etc.
