Israel's BlueBird Aero Systems has been awarded a contract to supply its MicroB small unmanned air system to an undisclosed NATO member in western Europe.
Already delivered to a number of customers around the world, the MicroB weighs approximately 1kg (2.2lb), has a 5.4nm (10km) communication range and an endurance of over 1h.
Capable of providing high-quality video and images and with automatic target tracking capabilities, the UAS can be deployed using a hand-launcher in a crowded urban environment, or even through a window.
BlueBird chief executive Ronen Nadir says the MicroB is already in service with various Special Forces operators and first responders, and to support security activities linked to strategic infrastructure.
