The UAV IT180-30 is the traditional electrical version of the mini Vertical Take-Off & Landing Unmanned Aerial Vehicle UAV IT180. Able to fly up to 30 minutes with a 3kg payload, very quiet (42 dBA)* and fitted with a low radar cross-section, it can perform a wide range of operations requiring stealth capacities.

Operational Performances

The UAV IT180 was designed to meet military needs and to be operated despite extremely harsh weather conditions: rain, snow, heat, wind. Very stable, it can resist to wind gusts up to 60km/h. The UAV IT180 is very easy to operate and its deployment takes less than 8 minutes. Used by the French Army since 2012, the IT180 is a combat proven UAV. With its high Detection, Recognition and Identification (DRI) capabilities, it is ideally suited to ISTAR missions and site protection. Its high performances allow also its use for civil protection.
