Authored By: Staff Writer | Last Edited: 09/28/2018 | Content ©www.MilitaryFactory.com | The following text is exclusive to this site.
The Advanced Tactics Panther is marketed as an autonomous surveillance / delivery sUAS (Small Unmanned Aerial System). Its inherent value is in its ability to run along the ground (like a small truck) and take to the air as needed (with helicopter-like capabilities - Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL)). The latter is accomplished by way of six small motors mounted onto six individual wing stubs found along the sides of the vehicle's roof line. A high-definition camera in the face of the vehicle hull provides real-time views of the action ahead. The wheeled nature of the design offers both two- or four-wheeled drive for navigating smooth and uneven terrains, respectively. Internally, the small robotic vehicle can haul up to 10 pounds of cargo and there are several mission equipment options offered such as additional cameras, specialized sensors and controllable robotic arms for maneuvering items. The flight system is programmable with some autonomy possible. The drive-to-flight and flight-to-drive modes are accessed with little work.

At this point, the Panther is being marketed as a commercial product for sectors such as wildlife conservation, geological surveying, building / bridge assessment and the like - essentially roles where it benefits the situation to not need a direct, on-the-spot human presence (surveying wildlife at distance for example). The vehicle also offers capabilities to reach areas cut-off from humans without the need to call for a full-sized, manned helicopter-type aircraft - delivering medical goods / water to those in need, locating injured persons over very-rough terrain, and collecting environmental samples in potentially fatal areas.

As designed, the product has an overall length of 44 inches with a height of 13.5 inches and width of 43.2 inches (with propeller blades included, 29 inches with the motor arms stowed). Empty weight is forty-four pounds and travel speeds reach up to 5 mph. Endurance is out to 60 miles on the ground and 6 miles in the air (50 mph speeds possible in flight). The sUAS can hover for up to ten minutes.
