With advanced image processing capabilities, automatic takeoff and recovery system, and the ability to navigate with or without GPS/ datalink, Orbiter 4 delivers superior performance capabilities, operational flexibility and cost-effectiveness in a small tactical UAS that is unique in its category.

Airstrip independent, it is able to take-off and land on any type of vessel. Operated by only three personnel, it is easy to use, maintain, and carries a low logistical footprint.
