The VSR700 is an unmanned helicopter developed to provide real-time intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities. It features a compact, lightweight design that allows it to be easily integrated into various naval platforms, including frigates and offshore patrol vessels. With a maximum take-off weight of approximately 700 kg, the VSR700 offers a payload capacity of up to 150 kg, enabling the carriage of a range of sensors and equipment.

One of the standout features of the VSR700 is its extended endurance. The aircraft can remain airborne for up to 10 hours, providing sustained surveillance and reconnaissance coverage over vast areas. This endurance is complemented by a range of up to 200 nautical miles, allowing the VSR700 to operate effectively in both littoral and open ocean environments.

The VSR700 is equipped with a suite of advanced sensors, including electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) cameras, radar, and electronic support measures (ESM). These sensors enable the VSR700 to conduct a variety of missions, such as maritime patrol, anti-submarine warfare, and search and rescue operations. The data collected by the VSR700 can be transmitted in real-time to command and control centers, enhancing situational awareness and decision-making.

Another significant feature of the VSR700 is its automated takeoff and landing capability. This feature reduces the workload on the crew and ensures safe operations, even in challenging sea conditions. The VSR700 incorporates flight control systems and onboard processing that allow it to perform complex missions with minimal human intervention.
