CSSC SG-60


Maritime Intelligence-Surveillance-Reconnaissance (ISR) Drone (2018)


Aviation / Aerospace

The Chinese CSSC SG-60 appears to be an unlicensed copy of the Boeing Insitu RQ-21 Blackjack in use by the United States Navy service.

Taking a page out of the Boeing Insitu Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) product lineup is the "SG-60", a Chinese-originated shipborne drone capable of being launched and recovered at-sea. The aircraft, built by the aptly-named Chinese shipbuilder "China State Shipbuilding Corporation" (CSSC), bears an uncanny resemblance to the Insitu "Integrator" (known to the United States Navy as the RQ-21 "Blackjack") - this air vehicle is detailed elsewhere on this site. The aircraft showcased at IDEX 2019 was shown complete with the same straight-winged mainplane arrangement, twin-boom tail unit configuration, and "pusher" propeller unit at the rear of the fuselage.

The SG-60 is currently restricted to over-water data-collection through its given Intelligence-Surveillance-Reconnaissance (ISR) role. As with the Integrator, the SG-60 is launched by way of catapult system and recovered by way of skyhook and cable, these residing on any given warship with the space to accommodate the equipment.

February 2019 - The SG-60 was unveiled at IDEX 2019.
