AAI has quietly revealed a 75lb version of the Mk 4.7 Aerosonde UAS.

The re-winged vehicle is more than twice the size of the 37lb model, and offers 15lb payload capacity and more than 15h endurance, AAI said.

The company previously discussed offering a roughly 55lb version of the aircraft to the US Navy last year, but had actually submitted the 75lb-sized aircraft, AAI said.

The larger vehicle will be offered for the US Special Operations Command's mid-endurance UAS program and the navy's intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance services contract, AAI said.
