Orbiter 4 STUAS is an advanced tactical UAS, multi-mission platform with versatile payloads,optional BLOS operation and extraordinary endurance for all weather conditions. Built on thesuccessful system design of theOrbiter 3 STUAS -in use by many customers around the world and accruing vast operational experience - with its advanced avionics, communications, ground control features and applications, Orbiter 4 retains the legacy capabilities of the combat-proven Orbiter UAS family.

Delivering top mission performance with its highly-versatile covert platform - the most advanced available today–the Orbiter 4 STUAS is suitable for both land and maritime operations. The system can simultaneously carry multiple payloads, extending its ISTAR capabilities. Easy to use, with a low logistical footprint and a small crew, the runway-freeOrbiter 4 STUAS aircraft suits all operational needs.

The main applications of Orbiter 4 include:land and maritime ISTAR, target acquisition for precision-guided weapons, artillery fire management and BDA, communications intelligence (COMINT), electronic intelligence (ELINT), electronic warfare (EW), communications relay, border patrol and reconnaissance, ISR envelope for strategic facilities security, search and rescue, and emergency response.

At the show, Aeronautics will also feature itsOrbiter 1K Loitering Munition UAS. Designed for loitering attacking missions, Orbiter 1K hasadvanced guidance capabilities thatensure high precision, lethality and low collateral effects. Based on the mature, combat-proven Orbiter 2 

Mini UAS, Orbiter 1K delivers outstanding performance in terms of endurance and mission range, and is the perfect solution for the "Sensor to Shooter" concept of operation.Once launched, the 1K loiters and searches for targets, and, when it finds one, attacksit precisely,causing littlecollateral damage. The 1K is a combat-proven system with vast operational experience, providing a high level of operational flexibility, with extraordinary operational advantages for its category.
