Civil Airspace Operations
The World's First Certifiable UAS.
Designed from the ground up to meet the rigorous NATO STANAG 4671 standards, MQ-9B SeaGuardian is controlled by our Certifiable Ground Control Station (GCS) and is provisioned for our state-of-the-art Detect and Avoid (DAA) system – both are important technologies for operating in segregated and non-segregated airspace.
MQ-9B SeaGuardian provides the ability to communicate with manned aircraft and safely share the same airspace, making it an unparalleled option for defense and civil operations.
