Prismatic are delighted to announce the first successful flight of the pre-production variant of LASA-5 – a high efficiency, low observability long duration UAV.
As part of our test campaign at ATLAS, Spain, LASA-5 completed its first flight and went out to conduct a series of increasingly demanding tests leading to full automatic flight, exceeding all expectations.
Head of Projects, Dave Tyler who has been running the campaign at ATLAS, said ‘It was fantastic to see Prismatic’s new product, LASA-05, take to the air so effortlessly. This is our third new UAV design to prove its flight worthiness in 2020 which is a great testament to the whole Prismatic team’.
The LASA-5 has been designed for quiet, unobtrusive monitoring and support. Using Prismatic’s experience of high efficiency solar-electric UAVs, LASA-5 can provide day long operation and remote operation to minimise observer impact.
