Piloted and/or autonomous

Our Product

Based on the fuselage of the Berkut ISR, the Berkut OPA platform (Optionally Piloted Aircraft) is a single-seater aircraft built primarily of composite materials with an autonomous flight control system (FMS). This integrated platform allows piloting the aircraft completely in autonomous mode and delegates control to the pilot on board when required. With a load capacity of more than 500 Kg and a range of 2600 km, the OPA version integrates a wide and flexible variety of equipment, including LiDAR, Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), foliage penetration (FOPEN), and many others.
