An Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) sUAS drone developed by Terra Drone group company C-Astral Aerospace was tested and flown during EOTACS 2020

ATLAS C4EYE, a fixed-wing mini tactical drone developed by Terra Drone member company C-Astral Aerospace, has successfully completed the 2020 Expeditionary Organic Tactical Airborne ISR Capability Set (EOTACS) evaluation conducted by the US Special Operations Command (USSOCOM).

C-Astral’s US-based distributor, Planet Inhouse, demonstrated the capabilities of the ATLAS C4EYE sUAS to USSOCOM observers from Feb 24 to Feb 27, 2020. These observers included experts from combat development directorates as well as operators from the Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command (MARSOC), US Army Special Operations Command (USASOC), and the Naval Special Warfare Command (NSWC-WARCOM).

The ATLAS C4EYE team completed the final reconnaissance scenario without any technical malfunctions and without being detected by the observing red force units. The team also successfully demonstrated night operations, ‘Cursor On Target’ functionality with on-the-fly annotations of the points of interest and targets, full interoperability, and blue force tracking capability. The evaluations were led by the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) teams and took place on and from the McMillan Airfield on the Camp Roberts Army National Guard Base in central California.
