About the UA9


The light surveillance and patrol requirement around the world has seen significant growth on an unprecedented level as countries, governments and private agencies tackle ever growing threats and infringements on borders, international areas and regions of sensitive and national interest both on a governmental and private basis. The demand to have these areas properly patrolled and protected is on the rise and until now the options have been both limited and expensive with some countries unable to afford the specialist aircraft required. Even those that can afford it the costs are high as the current choice of available aircraft are expensive to maintain and operate.......... until now!

Only a handful of specialist aircraft have been available as well as UAV's (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles).

Most of these aircraft and Helicopters although they do the job well, are very expensive to acquire and maintain and requiring very specialist crews and engineers to support them. Limited numbers due to high purchase costs are available within a government's fleet and thus a less than adequate patrol schedule is met. Other limiting factors for these aircraft are range and capability in order to perform their missions perfectly and economically. UAV's for example are great patrol tools, however, they lack payload and are unable to carry crews, making them perfect for detection only. Their inability to be operated off site is also a hindrance the as the aircraft always have to return back to the base of departure. Expensive to purchase and very limited capability.

Helicopters are probably the most popular form of surveillance and patrol aircraft globally, however, limited range, extremely high acquisition costs and equally high operating costs do not make them the most cost affective choice, especially if you need to cover vast areas. Of course they have hover capability but that's not always essential when patrolling and detection is your biggest requirement.

The UA9 has been re-developed and designed by the capable ULS team from an original stock Aircam to meet with the needs of aerial support.

Several different configurations can be adapted based on the customer's needs that include a whole host of upgrades and integrated system technologies. UA9 has invested heavily in the design, architcture and upgrades to produce the aircraft which is best suited for long duration missions primarily on border and coastal locations . UA9 has engaged several clients who have shown a keen interest for the UA9 for their aerial patrol requirements. UA9 will display the aircraft at many industry events, so watch this space for upcoming locations and dates.
