UAV Demonstrator Sagitta Successfully Completes First Flight

July 24 2017

Airbus Defence and Space has for the first time flown its Sagitta UAS technology demonstrator, the company informed on July 18.

Sagitta flew autonomously for around seven minutes over the test site in Overberg, South Africa, on a pre-programmed course. This marked the successful completion of the first test phase, which also included an extensive series of ground tests.

The airframe is produced completely from carbon fiber composite using a number of new manufacturing processes. With the exception of the brakes, it is an ‘electronic flying device’ that is controlled by electromechanical actuators instead of hydraulic components.
