Micro Onyx introduced by Atair Aerospace is a miniature, autonomously guided parafoil system developed for the precision emplacement of unattended ground sensors and deployment of small munitions from UAVs. The system supports payloads of up to 20 lbs. (9 kg) Micro Onyx uses collision avoidance algorithms to enable simultaneous deployment of multiple payloads (50+) in the same airspace, guiding each payload to a specific destination, or multiple targets without risking midair collisions. Additionally, individual units can be networked to other units and/or base station computers to form a self-healing, masterless ad-hoc network capable of transmitting data up to 60 miles (80 km) per unit.
We salute SMi and its sponsors John Cockerill and Lockheed Martin for their bold decision and commitment to the armor community for keeping this event going, providing this virtual venue updating us and providing unique networking opportunities despite the social distancing and travel restrictions imposed on us around the world.
