FLIR ION 440 Bundle 

The FLIR ION M440 is a tactical short-range reconnaissance quadcopter purpose-built for austere environments. The ION is a small, light-weight, ruck-sack portable drone. This system gets in the air fast, ready to perform advanced autonomous functions while operating in obstacle-rich environments.

Rugged, agile, and ready to deploy rapidly, the FLIR ION M440 tactical quadcopter is purpose-built for short-range reconnaissance. The ION is rucksack portable and hand-launched. Built-in daytime and nighttime obstacle avoidance reduce cognitive load for operators in tight, obstructive environments. The ION can fly for 35 minutes, reaching a top speed of 23 mph (10.3 m/s)

The ION’s nimble flight capabilities pair with GPS-denied navigation. In GPS-denied or degraded environments, the ION can still maintain operation. The ION also utilizes accurate cursor-on-target, providing accurate coordinates for relay to the GCS. These battlefield capabilities combine improved situational awareness with intuitive operation to keep the warfighter safe and out of the line of fire in dangerous environments. 

GPS-denied flight capabilities, day and nighttime collision avoidance, and agile flight control make it an ideal reconnaissance air vehicle. The ION is NDAA-compliant and pre-approved for government acquisition by the Defense Innovation Unit’s Blue sUAS Program.
