FT-5 LOS tactical UAV

FT-5 LOS tactical UAV

A short-range tactical unmanned aerial platform intended for the execution of missions requiring reliability and prolonged flight endurance.

FT-5 LOS tactical UAV (the Moose)

The standard includes a surveillance payload with a daylight and thermal imaging camera, and can be modified depending on the specific needs and intended use. The Łoś can stay airborne for 12 hours. Real-time data transmission during flight, preserving high image quality.

The Łoś (eng. the Moose)  is a T-tail, highwing aircraft with two high-efficiency combustion engines which feature integrated generators supplying power to on-board equipment. In its standard configuration, it has a daylight and thermal imaging surveillance payload. The Łoś also has light, precision-guided armament carrying capacity, circulating ammunition, COMINT/ELINT airborne radioelectronic reconnaissance systems, and contamination sensors. The modular construction allows for easy transport and is ready-to-fly in 30 minutes. There is a portable, ergonomic launch ramp adapted for trailer carriage. The applied technology provides for fully autonomous takeoff and landing. Designed to land in glide mode on rough terrain without having to use airport infrastructure.

Depending on the intended use, the fitout can be modified to the Client’s individual needs and requirements. Łoś was recognised by experts at the 2016 MSPO International Defence Industry Exhibition where it received the prestigious DEFENDER award.
