Martin UAV is developing a new version of its V-Bat mini vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that will feature increased endurance and payload capacity, according to a company official.
据公司官员称,马丁无人机公司正在开发其V-Bat微型垂直起降(VTOL)无人飞行器(UAV)的新型号,该型号将具有更高的耐用性和有效载荷能力。
 
Heath Niemi, Martin UAV vice president of global sales and development, told Janes on 12 November that the company has a prototype of the new V-Bat that has flown, but he declined to provide further specifics. Martin UAV has provided the V-Bat to the US Army for its Future Tactical Unmanned Aerial System (FTUAS) demonstration. The V-Bat also recently demonstrated shipboard integration in support of a US Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) counter narcotics mission off the coasts of Central America and northern South America from October 2019-July 2020.
马丁无人机公司全球销售和开发副总裁希斯·尼米(Heath Niemi)11月12日告诉简氏,该公司拥有已经投放的新型V-Bat的原型,但他拒绝提供更多细节。 马丁无人机已经向美国陆军提供了V-Bat,用于其未来战术无人机系统(FTUAS)演示。V-Bat最近还展示了舰载一体化,以支持美国南方司令部(SOUTHCOM)从2019年10月至2020年7月在中美洲和南美洲北部沿海执行的禁毒任务。

Niemi said this SOUTHCOM mission, in which the V-Bat flew 273 sorties over 1,341 flight hours, was the first operational deployment of the V-Bat and demonstrated a unique maritime niche for the aircraft. The V-Bat can autonomously turn into winds, which Niemi said is critical for shipborne operations as winds shift constantly.
尼米表示,南方司令部(SOUTHCOM)任务是V-Bat的首次作战部署,其中V-Bat在1,341个飞行小时内飞行了273架次,并展示了飞机的独特海上优势。V-Bat可以自主的改变升力风向,尼米表示,由于升力风向转移改变姿态,这对于舰载作战至关重要。
 
The V-Bat features an innovative design with a ducted-fanbased pusher propulsion system attached at the end of the fuselage. The single rotor propulsion system helps the aircraft to transition from vertical to horizontal fixed-wing flight during any mission.
V-Bat具有创新设计,在机身末端安装了基于涵道风扇的推进器推进系统。单旋翼推进系统可在任何任务期间帮助飞机从垂直固定翼飞行转换为水平固定翼飞行。
 
Martin UAV lists the V-Bat as suitable for a range of intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) applications including shipboard surveillance, anti-piracy patrols, and aerial mapping, among others, according to Janes All the World’s Aircraft: Unmanned .
据《简氏世界飞机:无人操作》称,马丁无人机公司列出V-Bat适用于各种情报,监视和侦察(ISR)应用,包括舰载监视,反海盗巡逻和空中制图等。
