By Kyle Mizokami The Black Hornet Personal Reconnaissance System (PRS) is already the world’s smallest combat-proven nano-Unmanned Aerial System (UAS), and FLIR’s next generation Black Hornet 3 nano-UAV adds the ability to navigate in GPS-denied environments, enabling the warfighter to maintain situational awareness, threat detection, and surveillance no matter where the mission takes them. The U.S. Army Is Putting Tiny 'Black Hornet' Drones in the Hands of Troops The Black Hornet personal reconnaissance system can fly for 25 minutes and see at night. The PRS uses the Black Hornet 3 unmanned aerial vehicle, which is an upgraded version of the combat-proven Black Hornet … FLIR Black Hornet 3 Personal Reconnaissance System June 22, 2020 GDC Air Platform 0 It’s extremely light, about the size of a cellphone, nearly silent and can fly up to 25 minutes — but most importantly, it can locate the enemy and provide a distinct military advantage in combat. The FLIR Black Hornet PRS equips the non-specialist dismounted soldier with immediate covert situational awareness (SA). The latest Black Hornet 3, which FLIR Systems also calls the Personal Reconnaissance System (PRS), weighs less than a tenth of a pound and is just under seven inches long. Black Hornet personal reconnaissance system (PRS) is manufactured by FLIR Systems for use by military forces, government organisations, and disaster relief agencies across the world. Game-changing EO and IR technology bridges the gap between aerial and ground-based sensors, with the same SA as a larger UAV and threat location capabilities of UGVs.
We’re speaking, of course, about the FLIR Black Hornet 3 Personal Reconnaissance System is a nano-sized unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) — so small, you can hardly see it, but oh so big when it comes to surveillance. The FLIR Black Hornet Vehicle Reconnaissance System (VRS) equips armored or mechanized vehicles with an immediate, organic, and self-contained surveillance and reconnaissance system. Adapted from the Black Hornet Personal Reconnaissance System (PRS), the VRS has extended this game-changing and lifesaving capability of the Black Hornet nano-UAV.
