The new AWHERO Rotary Unmanned Air System (RUAS) benefits from the Leonardo's strength and extensive experience in rotorcraft development.
Two modular payload bays carry sensors including radar (such as the Gabbiano TS Ultra-Light), EO/IR and advanced communication systems.
The AWHERO can perform land operations from rough terrain and in harsh environment and is ideally suited for maritime operations. Its low footprint means that it can be easily maneuvered, stowed and maintained in ships facility.
