First Public Showing of Proxy Aviation's SkyRaider Unmanned Aerial Vehicle at Live Demo
Proxy will display newest aircraft at AUVSI's Webster Field Demo
Germantown, Md. -- July 31, 2007 -- Proxy Aviation Systems, Inc. (www.proxyaviation.com), a company that develops fully autonomous, optionally piloted unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), announced today that it will display its newest unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), SkyRaider, at the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International’s (AUVSI) Unmanned Systems North America 2007 (www.auvsi.org/Home/) trade show. SkyRaider is a powerful, low and medium altitude, multi-payload UAV capable of carrying a variety of external stores.
Proxy Aviation Systems will be exhibiting at AUVSI’s Unmanned Systems North America 2007 Conference to be held August 6–9, 2007 at the Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. Interested parties are invited to meet with Proxy at booth #837.
As a kickoff to the conference, on Monday, August 6, the 4th biennial Unmanned Systems Demonstration will be held at the Webster Field Annex of Naval Air Station, Patuxent River, Md. Approximately 30 unmanned air and ground systems will participate in what is considered to be the largest unmanned systems demonstration in history. Proxy Aviation’s SkyRaider will be onsite in a static presentation for public viewing.
During AUVSI, Proxy will make a major announcement concerning a series of demonstrations of the cooperative flight capabilities of its SkyWatcher and SkyRaider UAVs, managed by its SkyForce Distributed Management System (DMS). These tests were conducted at Creech Air Force Base, Indian Springs, Nevada from July 1–11, 2007.
SkyWatcher is designed for medium-endurance, low- and medium-altitude ISR missions, while SkyRaider is engineered for heavy-payload missions requiring the carriage and release of external stores. SkyForce DMS controls both SkyWatcher and SkyRaider and has the built-in intelligence to formulate independent decisions during flight without any human intervention. This feature makes it unique from any UAV system on the market today.
