These latest generation payloads also include a Lockheed Martin-developed navigation system that delivers more refined target position information and superior image stability to the troops.”

“We are extremely pleased with the enhanced capability that these new payloads bring to Desert Hawk III and the British Army, ” said Duncan Robbins, program manager for mini-UAV systems, UK MOD DE&S.  “Desert Hawk’s latest enhancements allow it to operate more effectively in difficult conditions and provide our soldiers with greater situational awareness in a very timely manner.”
