The Micro Falcon Unmanned Aerial Vehicle from Innocon has undergone successful flight tests carrying the Stabilised Miniature Payload as selected by Israeli Defence Forces
Successful Test of UAV With Stabilised Camera Payload
Innocon has announced the successful conclusion of flight tests for its lightest UAV, the Micro Falcon, featuring Stamp day or night stabilized camera payloads onboard. A Controp Precision Technologies product, Stamp (Stabilized Miniature Payload) systems have been selected by the IDF (Israel Defence Forces) for its Sky Rider program.

With a high quality day and night vision capability, Innoconís Micro Falcon has now proven its flexibility in carrying both less expensive lightweight payloads as well as the heavier payload required for day/night applications. Before this successful conclusion to the new payload tests, Micro Falcon was already recognized as a remarkable UAV featuring Bentalís MicroBat stabilized payload onboard. With Contropís Stamp, Innocon has now been able to increase Micro Falconís payload carrying capacity to 1Kg thereby demonstrating a substantially increased versatility for its ultra lightweight UAVs. The tests were conducted with Contropís payloads of D-Stamp type for day vision, and U-Stamp for night vision.

Innoconís lightest UAV at 6kg, Micro Falcon was designed for soldier level missions of over the hill observation. Along with the companyís other UAVs, Micro Falcon features Innoconís Naviator Flight Computer which is responsible for all flight aspects including take off and landing. Naviator frees operators to concentrate on payload tasks exclusively thereby optimizing mission success. Operating at an altitude of 1000 feet the UAV can stay airborne for 2 hours day or night. Remarkably rugged, with boxed type wings, Micro Falcon can land upside down using a parachute for increased survivability and reduced redeployment turn-around times.

Controp Precision Technologies is a world leader in stabilized camera payloads. Its Stamp systems have been selected as the EO/IR payloads for one of the IDFís most important strategic mini UAV programs Sky Rider. Designed to be carried by a miniature UAV for tactical over-the-hill day/night reconnaissance missions, Stamp includes D-Stamp with a CCD camera for daylight applications and U-Stamp with an uncooled IR camera for night applications. These gyro-stabilized, user friendly miniature payloads boast a stabilized image of unmatched quality on lightweight gimbals weighing up to 990 grams.
