Unmanned G-Star passes qualification test
The G-Star unmanned air system jointly developed and marketed by Israeli manufacturer Innocon and G-Force Composites from Thailand has completed qualification test flights at 10,000ft and performed automatic take-off and landing at its 200kg (440lb) maximum weight.
A tactical UAS with a wingspan of 8m (26ft), the G-Star has a current flight endurance of 10h, although an effort is under way to increase this to 15h.
The G-Star is equipped with an advanced avionics suite developed by Innocon, and carries an electro-optical/infrared sensor and another undisclosed payload.
Negotiations are taking place with some potential buyers, but an Innocon source declines to comment, noting: “We do not talk about our customers.”
