The Lockheed Martin Condor™ is designed for small tactical unit operations
Developed in conjunction with the Air Force Research Lab (AFRL), Condor™ is a long endurance, Group 1 unmanned aerial system (UAS) designed specifically for small tactical unit operations.
Operators can easily carry and hand-launch Condor™ and fly it for 3+ hours on a single battery. Its fuselage accommodates up to two, 6-inch payloads, uncommon for the average Group 1 UAS. It also features built-in power and communications, so users can add custom or other non-traditional payloads such as triage supplies or droppable ground sensors.
All weather flight and marinized for sea landings
Lockheed Martin designed Condor™ to be rugged and reliable. Operators can fly Condor™ in all-weather environments, in winds up to 25 knots, and in rain up to 4” per hour (tested and validated). The air vehicle is waterproof, 100% buoyant, corrosion resistant to operate in salt water environments, and safe to land in up to sea state 3. Upon recovery from water landing, the air vehicle is immediately ready to fly again.
