Loitering Reconnaissance System
Adaptability is the key to Blackwing's design. With its built-in secure Digital Data Link (DDL™), Blackwing can deliver cross-domain command-and-control relay operations among undersea and surface vessels and unmanned underwater vehicles, and is interoperable with our family of UAS. It incorporates an advanced, miniature electro-optical and infrared sensor for rapid-response intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, and the modular payload bay enables a range of mission objectives. Blackwing can be deployed from a submerged submarine using an underwater-to-surface delivery canister, a surface ship, or mobile ground vehicle via tube or multipack launcher. Its small size and quiet motor make it difficult to detect, recognize, or track, even at close range.
