The new LUNA NG aircraft

The light-weight LUNA NG aircraft is designed as a powered high-performance plane made of glass and carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP) for long endurance and low acoustic, thermal and radar signatures.

A unique feature of LUNA and LUNA NG is its ability to perform glides without engine power with no acoustic signature and to restart the engine at any time. This permits operations in true acoustic stealth.

The data link transmits reconnaissance and system data from the UAV to the ground control station in real-time. LUNA NG is also able to perform fully automated reconnaissance and surveillance missions, without the need of any radio emissions.

Another unique feature of LUNA and LUNA NG is its inherent crash safety due to its glider performance and reliable parachute release and landing system.

The LUNA and LUNA NG TUAS aircraft can be easily equipped with a data link relay payload, which turns the UAV into a flying relay platform, enabling beyond line-of-sight operation of the unmanned ISR aircraft.

Due to its modular, multi payload concept LUNA NG can be fitted with up to three state-of-the-art payloads, including but not limited to:

Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), high resolution digital photo or video cameras, onboard data storage, meteorological sensors, radio relay, sensors for land mine detection, EW payloads, AIS (Automatic Identification System), gas and particle samplers, or radioactivity contamination sensors (CBRN).
