Airborne ISR solutions for the military
Airborne ISR roles are changing at unprecedented rates. Revolutionary technological advances have changed how we gather and convert information into actionable intelligence, allowing us to track, manage and neutralise threats with greater efficiency.
Our airborne ISR solutions provide game-changing persistent situational awareness and our tactical airborne systems provide strategic advantage in all environments. Our state-of-the-art image defined measurement and signature intelligence (IDMASINT) platforms have ultra-high performance target acquisition and tracking sensors, high-definition information gathering and threat mapping systems, comprehensive ELINT/ SIGINT / COMINT equipment, and can be weaponised for threat interdiction missions.
ShadowAir platforms are manufactured to the strictest tolerances for superior performance, maximum reliability, durability in all environments, and economy of service. Our aircraft are designed ‘to protect and serve from above’.
Manned / unmanned aircraft systems for the defence industry
The S10-VT Observer is a manned platform designed for budget-conscious law-enforcement agencies and news media outlets. It is a multi-function ISR platform equipped with dual sensor thermal / day colour camera for budget conscious law enforcement agencies and airborne news broadcasters.
The Observer can easily be upgraded to a dual-mode manned / unmanned aircraft system (UAS). Dual-mode capability allows a pilot to fly a manned mission, land and then fly the same aircraft as a UAS from a ground control station (GCS). It is designed to meet the patrol requirements of law enforcement agencies and news media networks. The Observer is ideally suited for border and coastal patrol in very austere environments.
Multi-function ISR platform
The S10-VTX Osprey is a manned platform ideal for scientific research and fast-tracking UAS development programs. The multi-function ISR platform is equipped for operation in very austere environments and is able to track up to 100 targets simultaneously. The Osprey also includes onboard process screening, multi-spectral image analysis and real-time data streaming.
The Osprey is designed to meet the patrol and interdiction requirements of military and law enforcement agencies. It is ideally suited for border and coastal patrol and interdiction missions in austere environments.
Manned / dual-mode ISR platform
The S15 Talon is a state-of-the-art manned or optional dual-mode ISR platform designed for medium-altitude long-endurance (MALE) surveillance and threat interdiction missions. The Talon includes high-definition multifunction sensor systems, risk mapping and geospatial capture technology, parallel DataStream communications, and QuickIntell processing.
HAVOC system for situational awareness and threat detection
HAVOC is a turnkey system of three dual-mode Talon UAS platforms and one GCS equipped to provide persistent situational awareness and threat interdiction.
Our operational mission system includes three specialised Talon aircraft and ground control station, modular quick change mission kit, and specialty equipment for identifying, tracking and delivering the message on time and on target.
