Description: The Skylark is a family of lightweight, man-portable small UAV (Unmanned Air Vehicle) designed to carry out very close range surveillance and reconnaissance missions in support of military and paramilitary forces. Besides, Skylark is suitable for perimeter security, border and coastal surveillance, anti-terrorism surveillance and law enforcement. Elbit Systems has developed this lightweight mini-UAV to meet the requirements of the Israeli Ministry of Defense (IMoD).
The Elbit Systems Skylark C is a highly autonomous mini UAS designed for tactical naval and maritime applications conducting organic maritime intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition and reconnaissance (ISTAR) missions. The system features a waterproof and floating air vehicle and will allow inspecting and observing maritime and/or coastal activities from a safe distance. The Skylark C mini-UAV can be deployed and retrieved by the same surface vessel in less than 15 minutes by a crew of two-man. The air vehicle is released using a catapult and retrieved by means of a parachute or optionally a ship-based net. The Skylark C was introduced by Elbit Systems in August 2016.
The Skylark C air vehicle is electrically powered delivering very low visual and acoustic signatures making it especially well suited for special naval operations, border security, anti-terrorism and anti-piracy operations. The air vehicle is fitted with an inertial navigation system (INS) and a stabilized electro-optical (EO) payload with a high resolution thermal imager and color daylight camera. The EO payload enables real-time day/night monitoring even in adverse weather conditions.
