Veloce VTOL UAS Enters Final Development Stage

ST Engineering is in the final stages of developing a new family of Veloce unmanned air systems (UAS) with vertical takeoff and landing capability, the company says.

The 60-kg-class V60, which is on display in the exhibit hall, and the V15 feature a pusher prop for forward thrust and four sets of rotors pointed upward for vertical lift.

The unarmed aircraft could be used for surveillance and reconnaissance, with electro-optic sensors listed as a potential payload.
