Israeli AirMule the new Tactical Unmanned Aerial System UAS to support soldiers on the battlefield.
 
 

At Paris Air Show 2011, the Israeli Company Urban Aeronautics presents its tactical Unmanned Aerial System (UAS), the AirMule. This UAS can help combatants reclaim an essential edge by enabling precise point to point support and medical evacuation solution in battle conditions that are increasingly averse to conventional rotor-aircraft access.

Today's battlefield is increasingly defined by enemy whose unconventional tactics seriously challenge conventional technologies. Tomorrow's battlefield will undoubtedly be more so. Cities and obstructed or inaccessible environments are the insurgent's battlefield of choice. supply convoys and medical teams entering these locations are under constant threats unlike any that have been experienced in the past. IEDs and roof-launched RPGs are an ever more lethal force against light vehicles, trucks and helicopters.

AirMule's small visual footprint, low noise and reduced IR signature offer a stealth advantage that greatly enhances its effectiveness and survivability. Unmatched time to target with the unprecedented capability of CasEvac on return offers life saving potentials Simplicity of design without complex cyclic rotor head means high reliability and low operating cost.

AirMule offers much needed capabilities to emergency responders in the most challenging situations such as earthquakes and floods. The ability to quickly deliver water, food and medical supplies directly to affected populations --no matter how isolated--can save lives. during nuclear, biological or chemical emergencies AirMule offers transformative assessment and response capabilities.

Day to day multiple mission capability (electric grids, bridge inspection, agricultural spraying, offshore oil platform support to name a few) make AirMule a cost effective addition to any commercial helicopter fleet.

AirMule flying test
     
In May 2011, AirMule prototype has recently resumed its flight testing after a systems and structural upgrade that lasted 4 months. The vehicle is now flying with an expanded sensors suite and the new, energy absorbing wheeled landing gear. This landing gear has been tested and shown to accommodate the full spectrum of the FAA's FAR 27 landing requirements. In addition, aerodynamic improvements were made at the vehicle's lower fuselage for improving its control response in gusty wind conditions. Initial results from the tests look very promising.

In parallel to the continued testing effort, Urban aeronautics is now working to secure additional funding that will carry us through the next few years and up to full scale development and production.
