Elbit Systems, November 20, 2019 - Haifa, Israel – Elbit Systems is launching MAGNI, a fully autonomous and robust Multi-Rotor Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) that is designed to significantly enhance the situational awareness capabilities of mobile forces.
Compact and light-weight (2.5kg) MAGNI enables rapid deployment and launch (in less than 1 minute) from any combat vehicle transforming it to an effective intelligence gathering platform.
The MAGNI system includes a thermal payload, a communications suite (dual S-Band or LTE), an automatic coordinate tracking capability as well as a built-in interface with Battle Management Systems (BMS).
Carrying up to 350gr of payloads it offers a range of up to 3km, a maximum operational altitude of 4000ft and 30 minutes of endurance.
Operated by a single user MAGNI enables vehicle mounted forces to generate beyond-the-hill visual intelligence during day and night, and seamlessly feed target information to command and control systems. Its unique Size Weight and Power (SWaP) parameters make MAGNI well suited for squad, platoon and company levels.
MAGNI is the third multi-rotor VTOL UAS offered by Elbit Systems which includes also the 10 kg THOR Multi-Rotor VTOL mini-UAS and the 5 kg NOX VTOL Micro-UAS.
