Elbit Systems has introduced an updated version of its Skylark man-portable unmanned air vehcile.

The I-LEX progression of the Skylark I-LE offers several enhancements, says the Israeli company. Skylark I-LEX is already deployed with the Israeli army, and Elbit has received international orders for the system.

The Paris air show sees Elbit commencing with broader marketing of Skylark I-LEX.

Improvements include better air vehicle performance, improved safety, simultaneous operation of two aircraft out to 40km, and the ability of forward operators to control the aircraft’s sensor payload.

The Skylark I-LEX uses algorithms derived from the company’s Hermes UAS. The company says its “fly-by-camera” mode allows it to automatically track both fixed and moving targets.
