Martlet Tactical sUAS Series

Tactical, foldable, micro-UAV

Martlet Mi-1

The Mi-1 is a foldable version from our Martlet Series, fulfilling our client's needs for a more portable ISR drone [micro-UAV] with maximal endurance and EO/IR performance.

ISR Tactical Drone Martlet MI-2, portable and silent UAS

Portable & Rapid deployable Tactical Quadcopter

The Mi-1 is now the smallest drone of the Martlet Family, designed for one-man operation. This easy-to-use system is both lightweight and rugged to be used in the most demanding environments. The system provides the operator with advanced and tactical in-flight features to enhance the ability to act on aerial intelligence: fast, safe, and smart.



40 minutes endurance [incl. payload]
5km datalink* range [*standard, ask for more]
120m covert distance [low noise signature]
Field-proven unmanned technology, now in a smaller and more silent system that is built with an open architecture to adapt it to our client’s current and future needs, ready to perform a wide variety of missions.
MIL-SPEC design
Foldable, rugged & lightweight
120 meters covert distance
Real time full HD datalink

GPS-denied flight capabilities
Artificial Intelligence features

Tactical, Foldable, Micro UAV

The MI-1 is equipped with an advanced EO/IR camera, streaming real-time encrypted [full HD] data to the ground control and remote viewing stations for quick and effective situational awareness.
NO data is stored on the UAV system itself – only on ground control

When the flight time of 80 minutes from the Mi-2 is not necessary, a more portable and quicker deployable system can help end-users gather aerial intelligence in a faster and more silent way.

The MI-1 is capable of GPS-denied (autonomous) flights and packed with useful features on the Ground User Interface like POI coordinates, live measurements, and more to increase its effectiveness and level of intelligence.

The P2P, MIMO, or LTE encrypted datalink ensures instant access to real-time information for individuals and command posts, even when flying beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS).

See without being seen

The MI-1 is designed to be silent. Thanks to its low noise signature, the system is unable to be detected or heard from a 120-meter distance. While the EO/IR camera can detect a human from more than 5000-meter distance and a vehicle from >20-kilometer distance.

The system is dust and rain-proof [IP43] and has a flight time of 40 minutes to maximize real-time aerial intelligence for critical mission success.

This military drone is designed for ISTAR missions, the MI-1 requires only 1 operator for rapid deployment, ready to perform manual or fully autonomous missions.

Powerful EO/IR sensors

Constantly pushing new technological advancements, we offer a wide range of field-proven EO/IR sensors that are leading in the field of micro stabilized gimballed cameras for defense, (public) safety, and industrial/commercial applications.

The sensors deliver powerful thermal observation and long-range visible imagery with license-plate recognition, geolocation, and 80x zoom. The lightweight design combined with our compact and modular Martlet UAV systems enables long-range observation and long-range operation. Optionally, AI software modules can enhance real-time intelligence.

Ground Control Station

The ground control station (GCS) is a portable unit equipped with a tactical interface and Mil-Std. components, built for one-person operations in all weather conditions.

UPDATE: New coordinate systems MGRS and UTM have been added to the Ground User Interface in addition to GEO.

Its user-friendly interface incorporates a real-time display and a moving tactical map for a complete mission overview, mission planning, different operational modes, payload control, and UAV monitoring.
