The newest and most advanced derivative of the Outlaw UAV program, the SeaHunter is the flagship UAV system from Griffon Aerospace.
SeaHunter was designed as a larger, cost effective UAV platform for ISR missions, system testing, R&D efforts, and payload development studies. Placed in the 250-300 lbs. max take-off weight (MTOW) UAV class, this airplane offers customers a unique product in the world of UAV systems.
SeaHunter is a twin engine design that offers a redundant propulsion and power generation system, as well as redundant aerodynamic controls. This can provide peace of mind to customers that want to fly payloads that are often much more valuable than the airframe itself. In the event of a catastrophic engine failure during flight, the second engine is sufficient to bring the aircraft back home safely. The on-board electrical generation from the twin engines can provide plenty of power for emerging small, but highly power dependent, payloads. SeaHunter is equipped with retractable landing gear for smooth take-off and landing. As with Outlaw G2E, SeaHunter can be configured for auto take-off and auto landing where improved runways are accessible. Reinforced hard points are located in the fuselage and both wings, giving customers the ability to add external payloads or auxiliary fuel pods.
Griffon SeaHunter is aimed at a broad and diverse range of customers. It has been optimized for versatility, reliability, and toughness making it a flexible, tactical-class UAV workhorse.
