The RedKite UAV is a breakthrough product in terms of performance, reliability and cost efficiency. Having completed a 54.5 hour world record flight in 2012, this is a proven product which has sold internationally and is capable of operating from unimproved terrain, night or day for over 20 hours.
Robust and compact, the RedKite system delivers highly cost-effective tactical ISTAR and offers a comparable performance to much larger systems. Integrated with Blue Bear's market leading avionics and NEXUS® ground control stations, RedKite is extremely versatile and has a low training overhead.
Blue Bear open-systems architecture permits the end-user to tailor the package to their individual requirements and provides rapid payload integration.
RedKite is a simple system with a low logistical overhead compared to more complex tactical platforms and with a small footprint can be operated from confined areas with austere support. Blue Bear’s experienced engineers and varied systems maintain a leading-edge technology awareness to ensure our solutions offer leading edge capabilities and upgrade paths.
