We are excited to share the below new product announcement from Navmar Applied Sciences Corporation (NASC). This past week Navmar unveiled the new Piccolo flown TRACER™ Unmanned Aerial Vehicle at AUVSI Xponential. The company developed the TRACER unmanned aircraft as a low-cost, high-performance UAV designed for speed, versatility and survivability. With a wingspan of 18’ and a Gross Take off Weight less than 1,500 lbs., TRACER provides end users capabilities in a relatively small footprint that are traditionally found in much larger and more expensive UAS. TRACER was designed for wide range of operations including Manned-Unmanned Teaming (MUM-T), reconnaissance, counter UAS, communication relay, insertion into contested airspace, electronic warfare, research and development, military training activities and many other mission sets.
NASC entire fleet of aircraft utilizes the Piccolo Flight Management System including; TigerShark, Teros, ArcticShark and now TRACER UAV’s. The Piccolo™ autopilot provides a complete integrated avionics solution that includes the flight control processor, inertial sensors, ported air data sensors, GPS receiver and datalink radio. With over a decade in the field the Piccolo II Autopilot has become the UAS industry standard flight management system. "insert quote from NASC)" said......
