Bushmaster

(Cyberflight Ltd.)

Cyberflight displayed four different mini UAVs at Eurosatory. The Bushmaster was delivered to the Royal Marines, for operational testing. It was successfully tested in mountainous terrain, at altitudes above 15,000 feet. According to Cyberflight, performance can be extended to 18,000 feet with minor modifications to the engine. Bushmaster weighs 2 kg on takeoff, and is manually launched for its mission. It is equipped a fuselage mounted color TV camera, fitted with an X10 optical zoom and a fixed focal length (x4 digital) wing mounted low-light level TV camera. Mission endurance is 1.5 hours and operating range: 5 miles at a height of 1,000 2,000 feet above the ground. Operating speed is between 70 maximum and 15 knots minimum speed. Bushmaster is equipped with four communications links for TV and navigation transmissions. It has manual or automatic piloting modes and an autonomous "back home" GPS based retrieval mode, if communications fail.
