Use Cases

Testimonials

The movement tracking ability of the Penguin C far surpasses the current payload abilities of the Shadow. The picture quality is clear and the stability option is very helpful in keeping a steady picture. It’s very easy to identify individuals and equipment using the Penguin C payload.

Persistent Brigade quality ISR feeds at the Battalion and Company level enables integrated reconnaissance and security increasing the units ability to shape the AO using precision fires and manoeuvre to positions of advantage.

Insights Day briefing by Maneuver Battle Lab

Penguin C has the best loiter time for a Group 2 UAS. It has the ability to conduct 24-hour ops with only 2 aircraft.

It is about a 1/8th the weight of the shadow and has a much smaller footprint than Shadow. You can fit the entire Penguin C system in one truck and one trailer compared to the approximately 8 trucks and 5 trailers the Shadow system requires.

UAV Factory Penguin C Group 2 UAS Technology Assessment, Maneuver Battle Lab Report

Penguin C is capable of operating in a similar capacity as another group 3 UAS such as the Shadow UAS, but with approximately 6 more hours of flight endurance, reducing the number of aircraft required to complete a mission, saving ground crews significant amount of time every day in both maintenance and preflight and landings.

The amount of flight time that Penguin C is able to achieve is impressive for the size of the aircraft.

The picture quality and stability feature that the Penguin C payload uses made identifying individuals and equipment easy compared to trying to identify them with any payload the Shadow currently uses.

Being integrated into NET Warrior made it easy to pass information directly to the ground forces. We were able to push video feed directly to the ground forces and had the ability to mark enemy positions on the NET Warrior map using grid coordinates taken from the Penguin C's payload.

As long as there is a decent amount of open area the Penguin C can land safely. It was impressive to see the Penguin C land with the little open area it had here. There are trees everywhere and it was able to conduct good landings many times. When it didn't have a good landing, it was very simple and quick to replace/fix a damaged part.

For perspective Shadow UAS (approx. 9-hour flight endurance) requires 3-4 aircraft in order to conduct 24-hour surveillance on a location. Penguin C could conduct the same mission with 2 aircraft.
