FLIR Altavian Ion M440 American Made Tactical Quadcopter

$13,999.00

Rugged, agile, and ready to deploy rapidly, the FLIR ION M440 tactical quadcopter is purpose-built for short-range reconnaissance. The ION is rucksack portable and hand-launched. Built-in daytime and nighttime obstacle avoidance reduce cognitive load for operators in tight, obstructive environments. The ION can fly for 35 minutes, reaching a top speed of 23 mph (10.3 m/s).

The ION’s nimble flight capabilities pair with GPS-denied navigation. In GPS-denied or degraded environments, the ION can still maintain operation. The ION also utilizes accurate cursor-on-target, providing accurate coordinates for relay to the GCS. These battlefield capabilities combine improved situational awareness with intuitive operation to keep the warfighter safe and out of the line of fire in dangerous environments.

The ION M440 system is an NDAA-compliant drone designed and manufactured in the United States. The ION is pre-approved for government and military acquisition by the Defense Innovation Unit’s Blue sUAS Program.

Description

GPS Denied Drone Operations  

GPS denied drone technology allows for day and night time navigational enhanced performance during GPS denied/degraded environments. In GPS denied/degraded environments, operators can hold position and navigate via dead reckoning rather than errant flying and vehicle loss.

Tactical Flight Controls

The Ion M440 tactical quadcopter enables pilots to quickly engage and provide a cursor on target in complex environments. The system also features day and night obstacle avoidance for obstacle rich scenarios to aid the pilot in quickly assessing a tactical situation.

CURSOR ON TARGET

The ION M440 allows operators to specifically relay target intelligence given from the aircraft’s Cursor Field of View (CFOV). The aircraft’s CFOV gives coordinates data for enhanced target processing, exploitation, and dissemination.

DAY AND NIGHT OBSTACLE AVOIDANCE

Embedded collision avoidance sensors and advanced software algorithms allow safer flight by autonomous collision avoidance even at night. This provides a failsafe to prevent operators from striking the ION M440 into obstacles and structures in obstructive flying environments.
