Bramor C4EYE

“The Ultimate C4ISR Solution – the most capable and affordable small UAS in its class in the world!“

The field proven BRAMOR C4EYE UAS line is appropriate for operations where real-time or near real time video observation and surveillance capability is of utmost importance. With an endurance of up to 3 hours, a standard data and payload link of 40 km, or the optional MANET / MIMO digital communications capabilities.

Non-Governmental and private organizations and sovereign actors alike use the C4EYE UAS for a myriad of applications such as Search and Rescue, wildfire containment and mitigation, convoy and transportation support, perimeter monitoring, environmental monitoring, anti-poaching, wildlife observation and research and ice floe dynamics. A myriad of other sensors, options and communications reach extensions are available on these systems.


“We have put this machines through their paces in battle zone conditions and the MOD has decided that this will be the UAS of choice for future procurement.”

A SOVEREIGN C4EYE OPERATOR IN EUROPE


The system is suitable both for civilian and military situational awareness use, such as remote infrastructure control, various types of ISR missions, real time urban and low intensity conflict zone surveillance and management, wildfire monitoring, etc..

The vehicle is comprised of a blended wing body modular airframe, with the emphasis on the smallest possible takeoff weight, advanced aerodynamics, electric propulsion, completely autonomous operation, endurance, turbulent air penetration and stability, ergonomic and user friendly ground control station, durability and mobility. The airframe is made of advanced composite materials (Kevlar/Carbon/Vectran) that provide a high level of survivability and no radar signature.


The stabilized C-Astral EYE family of gimbals provides electro optical CCD and state of the art un-cooled micro-bolometer based thermal imaging capabilities with the optional laser illuminator.


The system consists of the air vehicle with a EYE-X sensor, a foldable portable takeoff catapult and rugged ground control station. The system is highly mobile and fits into a MILSPEC, rain resistant backpack with the GCS embedded industry standard rugged package and is designed for fast deployment, flight ready in less than five minutes. It can be safely operated by single operator/pilot in command.

Basic C4EYE system package consists of:

  • BRAMOR C4EYE airframe

TARGET GEO-LOCATION
Accurate geo-location of a target based on its location in a video image is a key functionality provided by the EYE-X gimbal sensor at day and night. Scene lock mode will activate blue target square that will track not only inside the square but thought whole video.
 

VEHICLE TRACKING (LEFT), HUMAN SIZE OBJECT TRACKING (RIGHT)
Pursue mode continually updates the loiter point around the target to allow the UAV to center its flight path on the target of interest.

SENSORS

The C4EYE version is designed to carry only the gimbal sensor.

The weight of the camera is 300 g.

The UAV can be equipped with C-Astral Eye (single sensor, EO or IR) or Perceptor (dual sensor, EO & IR).

The video link has a range of up to 30 km with the tracking antenna.

With the use of an appropriate receiver it is possible to receive live video, as long as it is in range of the UAV.

Usually you would need to replace the system's propeller blades. During its lifetime the fuselage or wings might also need repair or replacement if they are used in a harsh environment.

The C4Eye can be equipped with a gimbal system.

The C4Eye version is designed to carry only the gimbal sensor.

The weight of the camera is 300 g.

The UAV can be equipped with C-Astral Eye-X EO/IR/LI (dual sensor gimbal with laser illuminator)

The video link has a range of 30 km.

With use of an appropriate receiver it is possible to receive live video to that receiver as long as it is in range of the UAV.

The C4Eye can be equipped with two different types of gimbal.

FLIGHT PERFORMANCE

The cruise speed of the UAV is 58 km/h.

The strongest wind it can fly can reach up to 17 m/s.

Total weight of the system (incl. catapult launcher and GCS) is 30 kg.

The aircraft can be equipped with a locating beacon upon your request.

Flights can be executed up to 5000 m above sea level.

The aircraft can be optionally equipped with a locator beacon.

Replacements usually include propeller blades and batteries. During it's lifetime the fuselage or wings have to be replaced if the UAV has been used in a harsh environment.

LAUNCH AND LANDING

The UAV lands with the parachute.

Users usually land inside a radius of 20 m from the GCS. With more experience, they get even more accurate.

The take-off is achieved with the catapult launcher (elastic or pneumatic).
