Stalker XE long endurance battery ​​VTOL drone airpalne

Lockheed Martin launched a long endurance  battery vertical take-off and landing(VTOL) drone airpalne  in 2018 - the Stalker eXtended Endurance (Stalker XE) is designed to operate in severe and rugged environments, and this improvement increases the average endurance by nearly five At times, the Stalker surveillance drone has been in service with U.S. Special Operations Command.

Stalker Drone Advantages

1. The top speed of the Stalker is 93 kilometers and the cruising speed is 58 kilometers per hour.

2. The battery-powered Stalker can fly 222 kilometers, while the fuel cell-powered Stalker has a range of 433 kilometers.

3. It is a portable aircraft with a maximum take-off weight of 22kg and 17kg for the fuel cell and battery powered versions, respectively.

According to Lockheed Martin, the aircraft's open systems architecture enables it to "perform diverse and demanding missions while maintaining a small operational footprint and crew."
