UTC to Supply Camera Payload for Saab Skeldar UAS
UTC Aerospace Systems has received a contract to supply Cloud Cap Technology TASE400 stabilized camera payloads for maritime operations on Saab's Skeldar unmanned aerial system (UAS).
The company said units supplied by the company's operations in Hood River, Ore., will be integrated by Cloud Cap Technology's European support partner, Magline Composite Sistemas, beginning later this summer. The complete system is scheduled to be deployed with the end customer by the end of this year.
Skeldar is a multi-mission UAS designed to successfully meet objectives on land or at sea. The Cloud Cap Technology TASE400 camera system integrates onto Skeldar. TASE400, which includes daylight and cooled continuous zoom mid-wave infrared nighttime imagers, weighs 7.5 lbs, including full GPS, inertial navigation system and image stabilization as well as scene steering, path track and object tracking.
