Description: The Husky is a small and light tactical unmanned rotorcraft developed by KVAND for civil and military customers and suitable for both land-based and maritime applications. The fully autonomous system can complete its mission from takeoff to landing relying on computer algorithms. Moreover, a dedicated ground control station can take care of the aircraft flight and mission accomplishment via a secure, two-way, real-time data-link. The navigation system provided to the Husky Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) combines redundant inertial (INS) and GPS data.
Its modular design enables integration of a variety of payloads tailored to mission requirements. Provided with two payloads bays, side hard points and an internal auxiliary avionics bay, the Husky can accommodate infrared, low-light cameras and CCD-TV sensors to conduct Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance missions. The carbon-fiber fuselage allows a maximum take off weight of 90 kg of which up to 42 kg assigned to the payload. The Husky has been designed to easily operate from surface ships' flight decks without the addition of a modified landing gear. Powered by two turbojet engines each rate at 20-hp, the Husky can fly at 1,800 meters of altitude, cruising at 110 kph while remaining on station for more than one hour at ranges of 60 kilometers. KVAND designed the whole unmanned helicopter system to be transported inside a single truck or small car trailer.
The ground control station is fully scaleable ranging from simple two laptop layouts to larger configurations which may include sophisticated information processing equipment and/or integrated suites. To avoid the issue of terrain obstacles that may interrupt the line-of-sight communications via data-link between the Husky and the control station, the vehicle's flight control can be handed over to alternative control stations in other locations which may not experience the data-link's line-of-sight problem.
