Platforms

esc is developing 4 UAV production lines (HAES 90, 400, 400 JET and HAES Scanner). R&D development in Unmanned Control Systems (ESCUCS) includes S&A Collision Avoidance System; UAS Ground Segment modules compliant with STANAG 4586 w/ C2 integration; long-term aims also include UGV and even UUV.


HAES 400 AERIAL TARGET

haes400_render_1The HAES 400 is an autonomous aerial target used to provide a threat representative target drone to support the Ground-to-Air Weapon System evaluation, testing and training programs.

+HAES 400 Details

The HAES 400, manufactured by HAES Group (a joint venture of the companies Hacker Model
Production and Evolving Systems Consulting), is constructed of carbon fiber and epoxy-based
materials.

The HAES 400 is capable of speeds from 80 km/h (49 mph) to 400 km/h (244 mph) true airspeed
at sea level. The drone can achieve flight altitudes from 30 m (100 ft) above ground level to
3,000 m (10,000 ft) mean sea level. Maneuvers include G-turns up to 20 Gs, and other aerial
acrobatic turns.

The drone is launched from a rail system. The drone can land by using a parachute recovery
system. Recovered targets are repaired, tested and reused. The HAES 400 can carry a full
range of current target payloads which include infrared and radar enhancements and
a chaff/flare dispenser set.

Background

A realistically moving aerial target provides efficient shooting practice and combat firing for
anti-aircraft missile systems SHORAD/VSHORAD, thus improving the quality and efficiency
of the gunner/operator training. Ten demonstrator targets in 4 different sizes have been built
in 2009 – 2013.

HAES Scanner

HAES Scanner

The HAES Scanner is a medium endurance unmanned aircraft system. The HAES Scanner’s primary mission is reconnaissance and surveillance in support of the operational commander.

+HAES Scanner Features

Features
The HAES Scanner is a system, not just an aircraft. A fully operational system consists of one aircraft
(with sensors), a Ground Data Terminal, an Image Receiving System, a HAES Scanner Satellite Link,
along with operations and maintenance crews for deployed 24-hour operations.

The basic crew for the HAES Scanner is a pilot and a payload operator. HAES Scanner follows a
conventional launch sequence from a semi-prepared surface under direct line-of-sight control. The
take-off distance is typically 50 m (165 ft) and landing 100 m (330 ft).

The mission is controlled through real-time video signals received in the Ground Data Terminal.
Command users are able to task the payload operator in real-time for images or video on demand.
The surveillance and reconnaissance payload capacity is 10 kg (22 lb), and the vehicle carries electro optical and infrared cameras. The aircraft can be equipped with sensors as the mission requires. The
cameras produce full-motion video.
