National Technical Systems, Inc. said that its engineering services group has signed a USD1.4m contract to design and build a series of unmanned aerial vehicle payload pods for Logos Technologies of Fairfax, Virginia under an AFRL/RI-sponsored contract.
Called the Mission Payload Pod, MP-2, the lightweight payload pods are designed to support a 25-pound payload capacity per wing of the UAV.
NTS has extensive experience creating payload pods for the UAV industry and NTS pods have flown on large and small UAVs and will soon fly on another small UAV. The MP-2 has been designed to accommodate a wide variety of payloads and heat loads to satisfy changing mission requirements in the field. NTS test laboratories document compliance with all vibration, shock, environmental and EMI requirements.
