Norway and Britain have announced they will supply Black Hornet micro drones to Ukraine to aid in its war with Russia. The Teledyne Flir Black Hornet drones can be used for reconnaissance and target identification. The cost will be up to $9.26 million.
The Airborne Personal Reconnaissance System (PRS) for Dismounted Soldiers Black Hornet equips the non-specialist dismounted soldier with immediate covert situational awareness (SA). This technology bridges the gap between aerial and ground-based sensors, with the same SA as a larger UAV and threat location capabilities of UGVs. It is light, nearly silent, and with a flight time up to 25 minutes. The Black Hornet PRS transmits live video and HD still images back to the operator.
