The SkyRanger R70

The future of multi-mission small UAS

The Next-Generation SkyRanger

Since its launch in 2013, the SkyRanger R60 has captured real-time aerial intelligence across 30 countries, for well over 100,000 collective hours of operation. The world’s most demanding UAS operators have come to rely on the SkyRanger when lives and livelihoods hang in the balance.

With the new SkyRanger R70, Aeryon is pushing the small UAS performance envelope even further, with more computing power, more payload capacity, and more advanced software features. Delivering a broader range of mission capabilities, in a wider set of environments, the R70 defines the future of high-performance small UAS.

Autonomous and Intelligent

With multiple embedded NVIDIA TX2 processors, the R70 is a flying supercomputer with an engine for real-time artificial intelligence at the network edge, including object detection and classification. Four dedicated computer vision cameras enable autonomous operations and flights in GPS-denied environments.

Carry Multi-Mission Payloads up to 2 KG

Optical sensors include the HDZoom 30 providing eyes-on-target at distances up to 5 km and the EO/IR Mk-II for high-fidelity daylight and thermal imagery streamed securely anywhere in the world. With the new Osprey carry and delivery payload, R70 operators can attach and deliver nearly any object up to 2 kg such as radios, ground sensors, medkits, and more. The R70 also adds a new front-mounted EO/IR payload (with image fusion) to supplement bottom-mounted, non-camera payloads.

Add Custom Payloads for Specialized Missions with the R70 PDK

The R70’s Payload Development Kit (PDK) further extends payload development to end users, enabling the rapid development of other mission-specific payloads. The PDK provides a full set of payload development tools for electrical, mechanical, and software integration.

Resilient and Field-Tested

The R70’s carbon fiber and magnesium airframe is tested to IP-54/MIL-810G environmental tolerances. In flight the R70 can withstand sustained winds up to 65 kph, and operate up to 15,000’ MSL. Mission success is underpinned by a robust digital MIMO communications link and two independent navigation subsystems. The R70 is able to execute semi-autonomous missions without an active wireless link for operations in denied RF environments.
