Wasp AE

The Wasp Micro Air Vehicle (MAV) is a small, portable, reliable, and rugged unmanned aerial platform designed for front-line day/night reconnaissance and surveillance. Wasp is the result of a multi-year joint development effort between AV and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). With a wingspan of 72 cm and a weight of 430 grams, the Wasp is AV’s smallest UAS. Wasp can be manually operated or programmed for GPS-based autonomous navigation. To ensure system interoperability, Wasp uses the same advanced technology found in other AV small UAS systems, such as Raven RQ11-B, Swift and Puma, and is controllable through a common Ground Control Station.
