Kingfisher 1 by BAE Systems Australia, Australia.
BAE Systems Australia is a world supplier of unmanned flight technology. The Kingfisher Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) are sized to provide a flexible experimental platform for a variety of UAV sensor and operational technologies. They have been developed by BAE Systems Australia as low cost, simple to operate and easy to modify flight platforms, capable of carrying test hardware for experimentation and demonstration purposes.
The UAVs are fully autonomous, but can be operated remotely for maximum control over experimental missions. When coupled with BAE Systems’ Ground Control Station (which includes the ISR Management System) they provide a fully integrated and adaptable experimentation system.
