Job/Skill/Specifications

This UAV air vehicle operates in open, rolling, complex and urban terrains with a vertical take-off and landing capability. It was interoperable with select ground and air platforms and controlled by mounted or dismounted soldiers. The BRV-10 Vulture used autonomous flight and navigation, but it would interact with the network and soldier to dynamically update routes and target information. It provided dedicated reconnaissance support and early warning to the smallest echelons of the Brigade Combat in environments not suited to larger assets.

History

The General Atomics BRV-10 Vulture VTOL previously the Warrior and ERMP or Extended-Range Multi-Purpose) is a medium-altitude, long-endurance (MALE) unmanned aircraft system (UAS). It was developed by General Atomics Aeronautical Systems (GA-ASI) for the Central Systems Colonial Military (CSCM) as an upgrade of the General Atomics Warrior. Soon after the General Atomics announced the successful first flight of the Improved BRV-10 Vulture II.

The BRV-10 Vulture II is designed for increased endurance, with 23 additional hours compared to its Block I predecessor. It has 50 percent greater fuel capacity through its deep belly fuselage and features 50 percent or more payload capacity. The upgraded centerline hardpoint supports integration of a 500-pound (227 kg) optional external fuel tank or 360 degree sensor payload. The BRV-10 Vulture II additional space, plus an improved Lycoming DEL-120 Engine (HFE), provides growth capability for an improved airworthiness design, with the potential of incorporating lightning protection, damage tolerance, and Traffic Collision Avoidance System (TCAS) features.

This UAV air vehicle operates in open, rolling, complex and urban terrains with a vertical take-off and landing capability. It was interoperable with select ground and air platforms and controlled by mounted or dismounted soldiers. The BRV-10 Vulture used autonomous flight and navigation, but it would interact with the network and soldier to dynamically update routes and target information.
