Elbit Systems Ltd is going to provide the Artillery Corps of the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) with the Skylark™ 1Transitional Vertical Take-Off and Landing Small Tactical Unmanned Aerial Systems (Skylark 1 eVTOL).

The company will also provide through-life maintenance services for all the IDF Ground Force’s STUAS systems (Skylark 1 & Skylark 3).

Weighing up to 20kg, the new Skylark 1 eVTOL is a man-packed or vehicle-based platform offering the endurance and range of a fixed-wing STUAS with the capability to hover, take-off and land vertically. 

Combined with onboard analytical capabilities, the Skylark 1 eVTOL significantly expands the operations of tactical forces and enables fast deployment in order to organically perform Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition and Reconnaissance (ISTAR) missions. 

Based on years of accumulated operational experience, the Skylark 1 eVTOL system is easy to operate (runway independent) and has a minimal logistic footprint. 

Its unique combination of features make it a force multiplier that provides combatant units with extensive, effective & efficient ISTAR capabilities.

Under the contract, Elbit Systems will replace the Skylark 1 with the new system that will be integrated with the currently operational fleet used by the IDF Ground forces.
