Multi-mission, Multi-role ISR System

For enhanced situational awareness, the Seeker 400 is an evolution of the battle-proven Seeker II UAS. This self-contained system with operational spares offers: a large payload carrying capability; high-definition video imagery; real-time data acquisition and transmission to remote receivers; autonomous takeoff and landing capability; external wing hard points for carriage of external fuel tanks or weapons; multiple sensor payloads; manual and autonomous capability (flight control and payload control); brake-assisted ground operation; separate or combined shelter configurations for the Mission Control Unit (MCU) and Tracking and Communications Unit (TCU); and integration with customer-preferred payloads (such as Communications Intelligence (COMINT), Electronic Intelligence (ELINT) and Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR).

The System

The Seeker 400 System operates at direct line-of-sight (LOS) ranges of up to 250 km from the base station and provides:

  • Real-time day and night reconnaissance
  • Target location and designation
  • Artillery fire support
  • ELINT and Electronic Support Measures (ESM)
  • Border and Maritime patrol

The system comprises:

  • Four to six UAVs
  • MCU and TCU units
  • Payloads
  • Field support equipment
  • Optional secondary MCU and TCU

System Features

  • Direct 250 km LOS control range with >10h over target
  • Range extension up to 700 km with passing control of UAV via the secondary MCU and TCU
  • Up to 16 h endurance
  • Up to 18 000 ft service ceiling
  • 100 kg payload capability (excluding fuel but including optional emergency parachute)
  • Dual links allow dual mission payloads
  • Brake-assisted ground operation/taxing
  • Piloted and autonomous flight capability
  • Observer and autonomous payload control capability
  • VHF and UHF FM Tactical Communications Radios Mode S Transponder and VHF AM radio for ATC interfacing. An IFF Transponder can be provided as alternative.
  • MCU and TCU can also be supplied as a combined single shelter or housed in a building.
  • System is air transportable in a single IL-76 or two C-130 aircraft.
  • ATOL capability or external piloted take-off and landing.


The unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) has a modular all-composite, low-drag design for optimum performance. The highly efficient engine and large fuel capacity provide up to 16 h endurance, service ceiling of up to 18 000 ft and payload capacity of up to 100 kg.
