Piranha Terminal Guidance Testing A Hit
CLMax Engineering and Procerus Technologies (www.procerus.com) have worked together to integrate Procerus’ closed loop vision-based terminal guidance technologies, OnPoint Onboard (TM), into the Piranha Micro Air Vehicle. The combined system provides users a method to rapidly deploy and precisely deliver lethal and non lethal payloads within one meter of a selected target. Successful engagements have been completed in high cross winds up to 15 knots, rain, and snow. Additionally the system allows for non line of site (NLOS) engagements day or night. When used on the fast moving and agile Piranha the system is capable of engaging moving targets.
