- R2-120 RAIJIN

The R2-120 RAIJIN is a loitering munition UAV equipped with a day/night camera for detection, identification and engagement of a target under the control of the Ground Control Station operator. The drone is equipped with a pyrotechnic payload suitable for various types of targets such as vehicles with different armour protections.


The Detail

The deployment of the drone is facilitated by its ability to be launched directly from its transport container also serving as a reusable launch tube and in which it is positioned with the wings folded along the fuselage. The wings deploy automatically when the aircraft leaves the tube (FLY-R Patent). The flight of the drone is automatic, but can be modified by high-level commands from the operator in the Ground Control Station, transmitted by the bi-directional RF communication link. The identification of the target (pre-programmed or opportunity target) is validated by the operator who gives the engagement order.

The final guidance of the drone to its target uses algorithms ensuring high accuracy even on moving targets. A high hit success rate is achieved thanks to the flight stability and manoeuvrability at high-speed characteristics of the rhomboidal wing as well as a very steep trajectory, high speed, visual, sound and thermal discretion during the attack phase.

Thanks to its features and capabilities, the system does not require any specific infrastructure for its operation. It can be deployed by infantrymen and installed on any type of vehicle or ship.
