IDEX 2021: Paramount Group unveils swarming UAV technology

by Charles Forrester

South Africa’s Paramount Group announced the launching of its new swarming UAV technology based on the firm’s new N-Raven unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) on 22 February at the International Defence Exhibition & Conference (IDEX) 2021 in Abu Dhabi.

Developed by the company’s Paramount Advanced Technology subsidiary, the N-Raven weighs 41 kg and flies at a cruising speed of approximately 180 km/h. The system can accommodate a variety of sensors, including electro-optic/infrared (EO/IR) and semi-active laser “sensor driven target identification and tracking” that helps operators gain an improved picture of the battlefield environment.

The N-Raven has a loitering endurance time of approximately two hours and can carry a 10–15 kg payload up to 250 km.

Each UAV can be deployed into a scalable swarm, with the company claiming that these can be launched from land, sea, and airborne platforms, adding to the systems’ long-range strike capabilities.

The company is also offering training modules for the system. These include an optional field simulator that is connected to the system’s control unit to allow for operators to rehearse missions prior to launch to ensure the maximal use of each UAV. Additionally, the system’s recording capabilities can be leveraged to provide post-mission debriefs to operator crews to allow for continuous training and development.

The company is also targeting operators with potential localised manufacturing options, promoting its mobile manufacturing concepts to allow for sovereign control of capabilities.
