Flexibility

The RQ-21A Blackjack was developed in partnership with the U.S. Department of the Navy to fill the requirement for a small tactical unmanned aircraft system capable of operating from land and sea.

Communication

Encrypted command and control datalink enables a line-of-sight operating radius beyond 50 nm / 92.6 km, with electromagnetic shielding to support customized communications and radio frequency sensor payloads.

Mobility

The system is transportable via ship, cargo aircraft (V-22, C-130 or larger), cargo helicopters (CH-47, CH-53) and vehicles such as HMMWVs or JLTVs.

Customizable Payload Suite

Blackjack’s open payload architecture can be customized with imagers, communication systems, electronic warfare payloads, signals intelligence capabilities and other tools to give the warfighter a look ahead in operational environments.

Interoperability

Compliant with relevant NATO and industry standards to allow interoperability across joint, coalition, and allied forces.

Proven Experience

Our systems are backed by more than 1.3 million operational hours and deployed worldwide with international defense, government and commercial customers with the most demanding mission requirements.
