Aero Surveillance (Stand N8-153) has added a short-range
unmanned airborne surveillance system to its portfolio. Known as
ASF 15, the system employs an FA 15 UAV that can carry a 2-3kg
payload for up to two hours. With a maximum take-off weight of
8.5kg, the FA 15 can be launched by hand or from a catapult rail.
FA 15 carries a dual-sensor stabilised payload with high-
definition daylight camera and infrared capability. Imagery can be
downlinked to a compact ASG T150 dual-display ground control
station (GCS) with short- and medium-range communications,
or a field-deployable light GCS.
