The Wasp AE Micro Air Vehicle (MAV) is the all environment version of AeroVironment's battle proven Wasp III. With special design considerations for maritime and land operations, Wasp AE delivers, in a man packable asset, exceptional features of superior imagery, increased endurance, encrypted video, and ease of use that is inherent in all AV UAS solutions.
Operating virtually undetected, Wasp AE's mechanically stabilized EO/IR gimbal payload transmits advanced imagery in high wind conditions for mission effectiveness. It also features hand-launch capabilities, with a deep-stall landing in confined areas on land or water.
Wasp AE uses system components common to AeroVironment's other UAS platforms, including AeroVironment's Digital Ground Control Station utilized for Raven B and Puma AE.
