The system delivers intelligence surveillance and reconnaissance capability, operating in extreme and challenging environments to collect, exploit and distribute vital information efficiently.
Watchkeeper X is a fully airworthy, certified, unmanned aircraft system that can be adapted to your exact needs through the right choice in sensors, exploitation, mobility and effectors options. These options can be selected and inserted throughout the lifetime of the system.
Central to the effectiveness of this certified high-performance unmanned aircraft system is the aircraft. It has an impressive 16hrs+ endurance; operating at ranges in excess of 140km with maximum transit speed of 95knots. When operating multiple aircraft with the system you can achieve 24/7 surveillance, operating at any range.
Designed to be tailored to your exact needs through our unique packages
Provides the vital eyes and ears of the system to deliver the best intelligence to your mission. Watchkeeper X operates as a multi-mission airborne surveillance system.
The selection of the right sensors for your missions is key to operational success. Our dual sensor payload capability delivers true flexibility to your missions and offers a future roadmap for enhancements to your system. Thanks to the standardised 15” gimble design and onboard power management, sensors are interchangeable with each other. Types of sensors available for Watchkeeper X are cameras, radar, communication intelligence, communications electronic support measures as well as seamless dual sensor cross cueing.
During any mission, putting intelligence to maximum use, delivers success.Primary role of the Unmanned Aircraft System is to collect as much data as much as possible about your environment. The ability to turn that data into information and disseminate it to the right person, at the right time is a critical feature of your system. With the Watchkeeper X, real time and post flight analysis tools allow you to extract even more intelligence from your captured data. You can share vital information directly to teams on the ground in near real time and wider operating parties connected to your existing networks. Critical decision making requires accurate and timely information, which Watchkeeper X delivers.
A highly mobile system to operate in challenging and hostile environments.Watchkeeper X is a tactical Unmanned Aircraft System. It can be deployed anywhere, anytime and can be operational within two hours of arriving at a location. The core design of Watchkeeper X enables expeditionary and out-of- area operations. It can be transported by a variety of vehicle types and offers a highly mobile and robust solution to ensure rapid deployment.
The system is not reliant on fixed infrastructure such as airfields and therefore allows flexibility in deployment. Our fully mobile solution minimises the need for large equipment holdings as the complete system can be moved to the area it is needed and have an immediate positive effect.
The decision to engage a target requires accurate and timely intelligence. Watchkeeper X gives you confidence to deliver.
Watchkeeper X provides effective surveillance, identification and targeting with pin point accuracy. The targeting information can be issued to other assets in your mission for engagement.
This requires integrated communications and precision information to be delivered. For time sensitive targets, the information is used to engage directly using onboard systems
to deliver an immediate effect. Effectors are all about making the right choice at the right time using all the information available. The options Watchkeeper X give you mean you can engage in a way that meets your exact requirements.
Watchkeeper X is built to the same standards as a manned aircraft, and conforms to CAA/MAA standards. It is designed to be a highly mobile tactical capability system offering 24/7 surveillance.
Robust, safe and reliable
Watchkeeper X is built to CS23/STANAG 4671 airworthiness certification standards, and can operate in zero visibility, harsh weather conditions and extreme temperatures.
Fully autonomous mission system, take-off and landing
Watchkeeper X has a fully autonomous mission control and automated take off and landing system, which reduces manning and training costs and makes it simple to deploy.
Watchkeeper X has an extensive range of options to keep pace with changing technology and threat changes in the future. The modular approach to its design means you can add capability now and enhance capability in the future.
