ThunderB -
Long Endurance.
Long Range. Tactical.

The ThunderB is a small tactical long-range, long-endurance UAS with extraordinary capabilities once found only in much larger and heavier systems. With a small logistic footprint and automatic take-off/landing it’s the ideal UAS to take into the field.

ThunderB was designed for optimal flexibility in defense, HLS and civilian missions, with remarkable cost-effectiveness.
It requires only a two-man crew and utilizes a pneumatic launcher for automatic launch and a reusable parachute and protective airbag for recovery in the field.

Real-time Intelligence and
Situational Awareness

Real-time Intelligence and Situational Awareness

ThunderB’s advanced capabilities and versatility enable it to conduct covert, extended-range day and night ISTAR (Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition and Reconnaissance) missions, providing intelligence assets that include rapid GPS-marked, high-definition video, and photogrammetric tactical mapping on demand (TMOD).

ThunderB’s cargo-delivery
capability

ThunderB’s cargo-delivery capability

makes it ideal for precise surgical missions. Small cargo capsules under its wings can be released automatically or on command, following a ballistic trajectory to their objective or dropped via a small parachute to protect fragile items. This capability is extremely effective in search and rescue missions, delivery of essential materials and deploying ground sensors.
