Silent Falcon is the result of the company’s collaboration with Bye Aerospace. Silent Falcon is a small tactical UAS (or UAV) which for long-range intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions. The Silent Falcon uses Thin Film Photo Voltaic (TFPV) panels built into the wings with lithium polymer batteries for energy storage. Therefore it can fly up to 14 hours. The solar-powered UAV Silent Falcon can fly up to six hours running on battery power during night time.
