Developed for the most demanding UAS operations, the SkyRanger R70 establishes a new benchmark for small UAS performance and reliability. With its expanded carrying capacity, open architecture, and advanced autonomy and artificial intelligence, the R70 is redefining what’s possible with a small VTOL UAS.

Adaptive. Innovative. Powerful.

  • Resilient and Operator-Proven

    R70’s carbon fiber and magnesium airframe is tested to IP-54/MIL-810G. Operating up to 15,000’ MSL and withstanding sustained winds up to 65 kph.

  • An Open Architecture

    The R70's open architecture, including the Payload Development Kit (PDK) supporting payloads up to 3.5kg, allows end users and integrators to expand the capability set of their aircraft.

  • Autonomous and Intelligent

    Advanced edge-of-network processing, enabling object detection and classification, semi-autonomous flight, and the ability to thrive in GPS- or comms-denied environments.
