LM Perceptor Gimbal Will Provide Enhanced Imaging in Small Unmanned System for Warfighters

Lockheed Martin’s [NYSE: LMT] partner Altavian Inc. has been awarded a $4 million contract to provide gimbaled sensor payloads for the Army’s RQ-20 Puma small unmanned aircraft systems (UAS).  These payloads will feature the Lockheed Martin Procerus Technologies Perceptor gimbaled imaging sensor, which provides advanced stabilization and sharper images, along with dual-band imaging and laser illumination capabilities.

“The latest Perceptor payload technologies will provide the warfighter with unparalleled capabilities,” said Kevin Westfall, director of unmanned solutions for Lockheed Martin’s Mission Systems and Training business. “Its advanced imaging and stabilization will enhance operations such as gathering intelligence, providing situational awareness, and keeping the warfighter out of harm’s way.


The jointly-developed Altavian and Lockheed Martin Puma Perceptor payload has successfully completed Army product verification testing.  Having completed these demanding tests, the payload is now available to all branches of the military and Special Forces that require improved imaging capabilities on their RQ-20 Puma UAS.

Lockheed Martin has five decades of experience in unmanned and robotic systems for air, land and sea. From the depths of the ocean to the rarified air of the stratosphere, Lockheed Martin’s unmanned systems help our military, civil and commercial customers accomplish their most difficult challenges.
