Right Information at the Right Time
skyISTAR utilizes both inter-platform and intra-platform data fusion capabilities, interfacing with the C4I infrastructure, to provide the end user with the right information at the right time.
skyISTAR offers the ability to operate, modify or upgrade the system, independent of constraints placed by a manufacturer or country of origin.
User-selectable Levels of Autonomy
skyISTAR has user-selectable levels of autonomy to maximize the effectiveness of the onboard sensor suite whilst simultaneously reducing operator workload.
skyISTAR is configurable for a wide range of both unmanned systems and manned aircraft with remotely controlled mission systems. The fully integrated air and ground segments of skyISTAR provide a flexible solution, specifically tailored to customer needs.
Service Orientated Architecture
skyISTAR’s architecture allows the customer to define specific sensor configurations and provides an upgrade path as operational requirements evolve. The architecture enables additional mission capabilities, providing a scalable and modular solution for the end user.
Advanced Sensor Capabilities
skyISTAR can provide a full matrix of capabilities that covers the complete spectrum of RF, EO, Laser, COMINT, ELINT, Data Link both in LOS and BLOS, Tactical (11/22 and 16), Voice Communication, Ground Station, and Self Protection elements. However, the matrix can also accommodate specific customer requirements.
skyISTAR supports networked operations, providing interoperability with joint, combined, allied, and multinational forces. The skyISTAR infrastructure provides a multi-role capability across civil, paramilitary, and military domains.
