The Argentinian company Nostromo Unmanned solutions has completed the first flight test series of a pre-production version of the Cabure III Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, a short range electrically-powered tactical UAV. The current test phase qualified the UAV’s avionics integration, performance and tactical capabilities.
Cabure III is the latest version of Cabure UAV family launched in 2006 by Nostromo Defensa. The new model responds to specific requirements developed with close cooperation with the Argentine Marine Corps. The Argentine Marines have tested the current model – Cabure II – and recommending certain design changes through experimentation in several training exercises. Among the areas undergoing improvement were expanded operational envelope, reducing acoustic signature, extended range and endurance and over-water recovery.
