Thousandth FlyEye produced

At the WB Group facilities, the one-thousandth FlyEye reconnaissance UAV has been produced. It is the most advanced system of its class in the world, entirely designed and manufactured in Poland.

On Monday, March 25th, the WB Group announced the production of the one-thousandth FlyEye reconnaissance UAV. It is the most advanced system of its class in the world, entirely designed and manufactured in Poland. The FlyEye has been field-tested in the most challenging conditions, including high-intensity conflicts. The WB Group is a global leader in the development and production of unmanned systems.

In mid-March, the one-thousandth FlyEye unmanned aerial vehicle in the 3.x variant rolled off the production line. The huge number of systems delivered in a short period confirms the rapid expansion of WB Group’s manufacturing capabilities. It also builds trust in the manufacturer as an entity capable of timely fulfilling even very large orders for unmanned systems.

The FlyEye was developed by engineers from the Gliwice-based company Flytronic, which is part of the WB Group. It is the most advanced reconnaissance unmanned system in its class worldwide. The FlyEye can operate in the most challenging conditions day and night, even in situations of complete communication or satellite navigation system interference.

The FlyEye was designed by Polish engineers and is manufactured by a Polish company. The system has confirmed its characteristics and has been combat-tested during high-intensity conflicts. The FlyEye is characterized by the highest survivability rate and successful mission completion among all unmanned aerial vehicles used during operations since 2015.

The FlyEye is a system owned entirely by the WB Group. As a result, it can be produced and exported in any quantity, as well as continuously improved and modified without limitations. FlyEye unmanned systems are used by the Polish Armed Forces, Border Guard, as well as military and security forces of other countries (Territorial Defence Forces – 660 Hours of Flight Time Performed By The Unmanned Airborne Vehicles Over The Border Zone).

The FlyEye is an electrically powered, small, and difficult to detect motor glider with high endurance flight capability. It can be used for battlefield observation, artillery guidance, retransmission, border patrolling, or monitoring critical infrastructure.

The unmanned aerial vehicle is powered by a quiet electric motor, but it glides for most of the time. This reduces its acoustic signature almost to zero. Foldable propellers result in a low radar reflection level.

The FlyEye stands out for its nearly vertical hand-launched takeoff. The UAV does not require any additional assisting devices for takeoff or landing. It is characterized by a very low logistical burden. The entire system can be transported in just two backpacks. It can land in rough terrain, even in limited space.

The FlyEye carries a mission module, typically equipped with an optoelectronic head. The use of a daytime and thermal camera allows for target detection and identification, as well as the transmission of precise data about its position to the operator station or the Topaz battlefield management system.

The system can be equipped with a transponder or the EyeQ Air artificial intelligence module, enabling onboard image analysis. This allows missions to be carried out in environments affected by electronic warfare measures. The FlyEye can also be used as an airborne retransmitter with the Perad radio station, creating the Silent Network communication system (Silent Network).
