Indago 3 - UAV

The Lockheed Martin Procerus Technologies Indago vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) small unmanned aerial system (UAS) brings expeditionary intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) applications.

2 Minute Deployment

Ruggedized, backpackable, and rapidly deployable, the Indago system weighs less than 10 lbs., fits within a small backpack, and deploys in approximately 2 minutes. With industry-leading endurance and high resolution payload options, and low acoustic signature, Indago provides tactical situational awareness and intelligence collection capabilities for military and government customers around the globe.
