Effective September 2017, Vancro has partnered with Martin UAV in selling a suite of products to include the new V-Bat Vertical Take Off and Landing (VTOL) Unmanned Aerial System (UAS).

The V-Bat is a long endurance VTOL UAS design ideal for shipboard and confined area operations. A ducted fan design maximizes safety by eliminating exposed rotors. The aircraft can be tactically launched and recovered in a 20 x 20 ft clearing and can fly for 8+ hours with a 5+ lb payload.

Effective VTOL capability combined with the operational safety of a shrouded fan and the endurance of a fixed-wing aircraft, the V-BAT has revolutionized the market.

Easily transported with a near-zero footprint, the Martin UAV V-Bat bridges critical mission gap at the tactical level where it is needed most.
