MARK 4.7
Textron Systems’ Aerosonde Mark 4.7 Small Unmanned Aircraft System (SUAS) is designed to accommodate both land-
based and shipboard applications. The Aerosonde SUAS amassed more than 10,000 combat flight hours in just months
upon its initial deployment in support of U.S. ground forces. With integrated, day-and-night intelligence, surveillance and
reconnaissance (ISR) payload operations and multi-payload capability, the Aerosonde system gives forces the capabilities
they need to get the job done safely and effectively.
The Aerosonde 4.7 SUAS evolved from lauded earlier Aerosonde
configurations, which have traversed the world during history-making
transoceanic and hurricane-hunting flights. Today, the Aerosonde Mark
4.7 is an affordable, expeditionary SUAS for tactical land-based and
shipboard missions.
We offer flexible options for our customers’ mission goals and support
system sales with an established training curriculum, devices and
instructional services. For those customers seeking SUAS ISR without
the sizable fleet and personnel investment, we can execute full-service
operations and maintenance on a fee-for-service basis. Our professional
operators reliably provide ISR sensor product on station and on time.
Flexible system capabilities and a variety of sales and service options –
we work with our customers to create the right solution for the mission.
The entire Launch and Recovery
Trailer (LRT) is deployed in one
High-Mobility Trailer.
The LRT can be utilized for restricted
feld operations.
