MILANO test

On 22 September, the unmanned aircraft MILANO was presented to the Spanish Ministry of Defence authorities and has successfully completed its first public flight at Rozas Airborne Research Center (CIAR). The event, which was attended by authorities from the Spanish Ministry of Defence, such as the Secretary of State for Defense Esperanza Casteleiro, as well as from the Galician government and representatives of aeronautical companies, has meant the presentation of this INTA unmanned aircraft.

MILANO is a long-endurance tactical unmanned aerial system, operating at medium altitudes, designed for reconnaissance, surveillance and target acquisition missions, with an operational ceiling of 28000 ft above sea level, an endurance of up to 20 flight hours, and a range of operating speeds from 65 m/s to 120 m/s. MILANO’s geometry produce a very small radar signature, which reduces the possibility of being detected during missions. The capacity of the aircraft referred to transportable weight and volume, the available electrical power, as well as the advanced communications system used, allow the integration of a wide range of electro-optical payloads and synthetic aperture radars.

In addition to the aerial demonstration, the event was complemented with a visit to CIAR facilities, an explanation of MILANO’s capabilities and a static exhibition.
