The InstantEye Mk-3 GEN4-D1 is the most recent addition to the InstantEye family of combat-proven, high-performance, affordable systems. It is an encrypted, all-digital system with superb real-time visible and thermal video as well as still imagery to support standoff reconnaissance of any target set. The InstantEye Mk-3 GEN4-D1 is the largest aircraft in the family, with a payload capacity of over three pounds. It is designed to serve as an organic enabler at the tactical edge, providing near real-time ISR, communications relay (ANW2C), chemical/radiological detection, and payload delivery as consequence management to defeat IEDs.
InstantEye systems are noted for their ease of use, with an intuitive architecture that makes it MOS (military occupational specialty) non-specific. The Mk3 systems use a tablet computer as a viewing device, with an all new two hand controller that has lineage to our combat proven Mk2 systems. The tablet allows the operator to capture and review still imagery in flight and program waypoint missions.
Operated by a single person, the Mk3 GEN4-D1 can rapidly transition from stowed to its operational configuration to support any mission set. With an ability to operate in all weather and locations, it is an unmatched tactical enabler of operational effects.
The InstantEye Mk-3 GEN4-D1 is currently delivering systems in low rate initial production and will transition to full rate production to deliver orders starting March 29, 2019.
InstantEye Robotics is a division of Physical Sciences Inc., both located in Andover Massachusetts.
