SYPAQ’s partner, Arcturus UAV, has deployed their JUMP 20 Fixed Wing VTOL UAV with the Mexican Navy for unspecified operations in Mexico. The customer took delivery of the VTOL system in March.
The JUMP 20 is a VTOL variant of Arcturus UAV’s catapult launched T-20 platform. The JUMP 20 operates without any special launch or recovery equipment. Gross payload capacity is 60 lbs. The Mexican Navy configuration with EO/IR sensor has approximately 15 hours of endurance and 75 mile data link range. An EO/IR and EW capable version offers 11 hours of endurance. Mexico has operated a fleet of catapult launch T-20s since 2014.
Arcturus has proposed the JUMP 20 VTOL platform for MEUAS III, USSOCOM’s worldwide UAS services contract. Arcturus has also proposed a heavy fuel version of the T-20 JUMP for the Royal Australian Navy’s Tactical Unmanned Aircraft Program.
