Israeli unmanned air systems manufacturer Innocon has won a contract to supply its MiniFalcon II to the air force of an Asian country.

Innocon chief executive Michael Armon says the deal is for six systems, with each consisting of a ground control station and three air vehicles. The contract is worth "a few million US dollars", he adds, with deliveries to begin in July 2014.

The MiniFalcon II is a tactical UAS with a maximum take-off weight of 170kg (375lb), and a maximum 15h flight endurance at altitudes up to 15,000ft (4,570m). The aircraft has a payload capacity of 35kg, enabling it to carry an electro-optical/infrared sensor and laser designator for targeting purposes.
