InstantEye Mk-3 Systems

The InstantEye Mk-3 systems feature state-of-the-art, all-digital data communications and data encryption. The systems’ enhanced onboard computing power enables features such as vision-based navigation, GPS-denied navigation, and advanced video processing.  All systems are field packable and available with extended duration Mission Batteries.

The D1 and D2 variants of the systems represent different communications frequencies, to better meet a range of customer application requirements.  All systems are equipped with organic video (5 MP) and thermal imaging systems as well as still photo and geo rectification capability for accurate target location.


The InstantEye Mk-3 GEN5-D1/D2 aircraft is the smallest in the family. Due to its small size, it has low audible and visual signatures, allowing it to execute stealthy operations.

• Aircraft Weight: Less than 9 oz. (base flight weight)

• Max Payload Weight: 1 oz.

• Video Range: Line of sight (LOS), up to 1.5 kilometers

• Endurance: Over 15 minutes with standard battery and 27+ minutes with Mission Battery

The InstantEye Mk-3 GEN4-D1/D2 (HL) can carry up to 3 lbs. of payload under wind conditions up to 20 mph.  It can achieve an endurance approaching 20 minutes when used with the Mission Battery.  Its Heavy Lift (HL) capability allows it to carry a range of tactical payloads including sensors, illuminators, and long range imaging cameras, all serviced through its standard payload port.  The wind handling capability enables highly accurate charge emplacement for IED defeat when used with the system’s remotely activated dropper payload.

• Aircraft Weight: 3 lbs. (base flight weight)

• Max Payload Weight: 3 lbs.

• Video Range: Line of sight (LOS), up to 4 kilometers

• Endurance: Up to 30 minutes (payload/wind dependent) and 15 to 20 minutes with 3 lb. payload.

The InstantEye Mk-3 GEN4-D1/D2 (ISR) is a high endurance variant of the Mk-3 GEN4 family of aircraft.  It can achieve an endurance exceeding 30 minutes using its standard 5.6 Ah battery and flight times approaching 60 minutes when used with its Mission Battery.  It can be equipped with the modular Tactical Standoff Payload (TSOP) for longer range imaging with a modest reduction in flight times.

• Aircraft Weight: 3 lbs. (base flight weight)

• Max Payload Weight: 3 lbs.

• Video Range: Line of sight (LOS), up to 4 kilometers

• Endurance: Up to 30 minutes (payload/wind dependent) and 50 to 60 minutes with its Mission Battery
