VStar has successfully flight-tested its new single intelligence sensor on a UAV.

The MA-C/lite, which weighs about 2 pounds, was tested on a Martin V-Bat UAV.

"Over the duration of 35 minutes at an altitude of 400 feet above ground level, MA-C/lite collected signals from as far as 20 miles distance," according to a VStar news release.

"The launch of the MA-C/lite sensor is VStar's first step in commoditizing sigint — allowing smaller aircraft to carry a single, specialized module rather than extra weight and associated costs from a sensor that does more than required for the mission," the company said.
