Mariner – UAV

 

Mariner, a derivative of the highly successful Predator B, is a high-altitude, multipurpose aircraft suited for long endurance maritime and border surveillance missions. Configured to carry additional fuel, Mariner can operate on missions up to 49 hours, providing real-time and persistent intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) intelligence to users around the globe. In addition to over 800 lb of internal payload capacity, Mariner can also carry up to 3,800 lb of external payloads providing for multiple and simultaneous mission capacity from one aircraft.

The Mariner is designed to meet the requirements of the U.S. Navy’s Broad Area Maritime Surveillance (BAMS) program as it can provide intelligence data directly into the C4 system architecture for both “on target” tracking and regional surveillance requirements. In addition, Mariner is the system of choice for homeland security as well as for several international maritime opportunities requiring a reliable, cost-effective unmanned aircraft system.
