Lockheed Martin completed a series of upgrades for its Desert Hawk UAV, increasing endurance while also preparing it for the integration of additional capabilities. The addition of a new all environment smart battery will boost the UAV’s endurance to 2.5 hours. Lockheed also added a new propulsion system with three to four times more thrust and made changes to Desert Hawk’s fuselage and nose. Those improvements allow Desert Hawk to perform deep stall landings, which reduce the space required. (Image Credit: Lockheed Martin)
