Aufklärungsdrohne liefert Bilddaten via Satellit <br /> The Sky-Y of Alenia Aeronautica, a Finmeccanica company, is the first European unmanned aircraft of the MALE (Medium Altitude Long Endurance) class to have completed a series of ground surveillance missions, by using a European-made electro-optical sensor, to have transmitted data to the ground through a satellite system and to have accomplished missions in any weather condition. Alenia Aeronautica has successfully completed an important final testing phase for the mission system of the unmanned Sky-Y aircraft at the Vidsel testing range in Sweden.

The Sky-Y has been developed as a demonstrator for innovative technologies created for unmanned aircraft of the MALE (Medium Altitude Long Endurance) class and the aircraft has now made six flights during which the following products were tested for the first time: electro-optical sensor EOST-45 developed by SELEX Galileo, another Finmeccanica company; the mission computer developed by Quadrics, a subsidiary of Alenia Aeronautica; a new datalink used for the sensors remote control and for sending images to the ground, and new functions of the Tactical Control Station with a Remote Sensor Operator Station also developed by Alenia Aeronautica.
