Proxity Subsidiary Successfully Flight Tests 8 Lb. Cyber Scout

Cyber Scout
West Palm Beach FL (SPX) Aug 19, 2004
Proxity Digital Networks, through Cyber Aerospace, an operating subsidiary of Proxity's On Alert Systems, announces the Cyber Scout successfully lifted off from the test stand entirely under its own power.

The Scout exhibited ample thrust for this test phase and required only 80 percent power to maintain a 6-foot hover. The test proved the current power configuration is more than adequate for lift off and hover and forward flight.

Weighing only 8 lbs., the Scout is designed to operate innovative clandestine reconnaissance, surveillance, target acquisition and could be hand-carried into battle to perform hunter-killer missions.

With an open access airframe fuselage, the Cyber Scout can be rapidly field-configured with a wide array of cameras, sensors, weapons, and instruments.

When fully developed the VTOL capable Cyber Scout is expected to:

  • Take off and return to land or water
  • Operate in congested urban and jungle environments, desert and mountainous terrain
  • Perform traditional UAV surveillance, border patrol, and wide area search and sensing missions
  • Fly to a location, land and use their own power to operate surveillance monitoring activities
  • Launch and return without a runway enabling deployment from small, concealed locations, naval ships, and building rooftops
