Air Vehicle

   
The light-weight LUNA UAV is designed as a powered high-performance glider made of glass fiber composite material for long endurance and low acoustic, thermal and radar signatures. A unique feature of LUNA is its ability to perform glides without engine power with no acoustic signature and to restart its engine at any time. The microwave communication link transmits reconnaissance and system data from the UAV to the ground control station in real-time. LUNA is also able to perform fully automated reconnaissance and surveillance missions, without the need of any radio emissions from the ground station.
       
Another unique feature of LUNA is its inherent crash safety due to its glider performance and its reliable parachute release and landing system. In addition the LUNA UAV flight is permanently monitored by an automatic terrain and obstacle collision avoidance system using 3D digital map data.
       
The use of LUNA, however, is not limited to electro-optical observation missions.
