Steadicopter Unveils Armed Black Eagle

Just Like the Standard Version - But With a Grenade Launcher

Smart Shooter's SMASH system, unveiled last January, has found a new home in Steadicopter's Golden Eagle UAV. 

The Eagle has seen a proliferation of different subtypes, from pure electric to hybrid gas systems. This version combines the Black Eagle 50E RUAS with the SMASH Dragon system, allowing the carriage of small arms anywhere from the average rifle up to a 40mm grenade launcher. Using the company's artificial intelligence and software, the system can (or is supposed to, at least) autonomously identify and distinguish between a variety of targets regardless of their differing movement states. 

“Today’s complex combat environment requires advanced solutions that enable forces to perform missions and neutralize targets remotely, even before entering the area itself,” said Noam Lidor, vice president of sales and marketing at Steadicopter. “Using artificial intelligence, the new system provides a field combat solution for the modern battlefield. Forces on the ground can now send a helicopter for autonomous intelligence gathering into the relevant area and, having identified and classified the targets, send in another helicopter with precise attack capabilities.”

“Using AI, computer vision and advanced algorithms, Smart Shooter’s SMASH technology enhances every mission effectiveness through the ability to accurately engage and hit ground, aerial, and naval, either static or moving targets during both day and night operations,” recounted Abraham Mazor, vice president over marketing at Smart Shooter. “Our SMASH Dragon lightweight robotic weaponry payload can be deployed on different unmanned aerial platforms, and we are honored to collaborate with Steadicopter and jointly offer the Golden Eagle RUAS.”
