HoverMast Lite

The HoverMast New Generation

The HM-L can carry a variety of payloads for almost any intelligence gathering mission, including EO/IR cameras, RF, radars, lasers, cellular communication, SIGINT, ELINT, COMJAM, hyperspectral sensors, and cyber. The system can also carry multiple payloads simultaneously, providing a full intelligence snapshot of a designated arena. All the payloads are plug-and-play and are easy to install and replace in the field by the operating team (O-level). Maximum payload weight is 10 kilograms.

The HM-L system marks the next generation in the HoverMast family, designed to meet the market’s requirements in terms of form-factor, weight, and power capacity. Breaking the height limitations, with a maximum hovering height of 300m, the HM-L combines high operational flexibility with unlimited mission time, performing 24/7/365. Outfitted with advanced surveillance payloads, the HM-L can detect people from up to 15 kilometers away, run facial recognition at 700 meters and detect vehicles from 20 kilometers, day or night. The HM-L can also be fitted with a variety of cooled EO/IR, RADAR, cellular, and RF communication, which can be mounted together or interchanged in the field. Operated from a ground control system, the HM-L can be integrated into third-party’s C4I systems with remote operations. With its modular, flexible design, unlimited mission time, one-button operation, and minimal maintenance standards, the system presents a low Life-Cycle Cost, and offers a highly cost-effective solution for uninterrupted situational awareness.
