UAVOS and ISR Technologies have developed a new unmanned helicopter ISR-350-5, set to be manufactured and assembled in the United Kingdom.

Designed for commercial and security operations, the new VTOL aircraft introduces improvements to all its systems, from the mechanics to the on-board electronics and the available payloads. 

The ISR-350-5 is based on the UVH- 170 UAV developed by UAVOS, a light, single-engine, gasoline-powered helicopter.

In cooperation with English ISR company, UAVOS is also offering a solution for the new medium-sized unmanned helicopter tailored specifically to the requirements of the commercial and civil operations.

The electronics are IP67 rated, allowing the helicopter to operate in harsh environment including a tropical climate.

Aliaksei Stratsilatau, UAVOS chairman of the board and lead developer, commented: “The ISR-350-5 joins our existing family of unmanned helicopters used for commercial and security missions.”

Adding: “The partnership with ISR Unmanned Technologies Ltd. creates the opportunity for both companies to explore expanding into new markets and developing new capabilities to meet future customer needs. New ISR-350-5 will be introduced at the largest defence and security exhibition DSEI in London.”
