ASN-209 UAV System is a multi-purpose UAV product with mature
technology. Via data link and ground control subsystem, ASN-209 UAV can
perform aerial reconnaissance, battle field survey, target location,
destroy validation and artillery fire adjustment in day and night in
real time. ASN-209 UAV System is consists of aircraft, airborne mission
payload, GCS, launch and recovery equipment.
ASN-209 uses digital flight control and navigation system, its flight
control mode has manual, program and emergency control.It was GPS and
data link to locate the aircraft. The system operation is easy to
ASN-209 uses rocket booster launch, parachute recovery, no need to
use the airport makes the system operation flexible. GCS adopts digital
computer control technology, which enables multitask planning and
real-time editing during flight.
ASN-209 uses 2-boom, rear installed engine disposition. Excellent
overall aerodynamic design and EMC design enable the system to install
many different kinds of airborne equipment, such as electronic
countermeasures, communication relay and weather detection.
The coverage radius is 200 km, endurance over 10 hours. ASN-209 UAV
System can supervise big area and frontier within one sortie. If 2 UAVs
take duty by turns, ASN-209 UAV System can work for 24 hours
