Pipistrel’s Surveyor deployed also with US. Special Forces

Pipistrel would like to thank U.S. Special Forces and their contractor for choosing our Surveyor special platforms for long-endurance surveillance missions.

After a time of secret  activities, SOCOM (U.S. Special Operations Command) has confirmed to Aviation Week (https://aviationweek.com/defense-space/aircraft-propulsion/socom-reveals-deployment-slovenian-made-uas) that Pipistrel’s specially prepared airframes are being used with “sensors to collect full-motion video and signals intelligence“ on missions flown up to 30 hours and 30.000 ft.


Our surveillance platforms can be deployed as OPVs or UAVs, and be fitted with a multitude of sensors, including EO/IR, Radar-based sensors and signals intelligence, with endurance ranging from 8 through 30+ hours at low, medium and high altitudes – all at a fraction of the cost of conventional solutions. With unique in-house capabilities Pipistrel also develops tailor-made OPV/UAV systems with advanced capability, including solutions for unmanned cargo delivery and VTOL capable vehicles, to bring unprecedented value and capabilities to our customers.
