Supersonic Hovering Aerial Vehicle (SHAV)
Recoverable, Strategic Reach VTOL Weapon System at High Mach with Sub-Meter Precision.

This new project builds upon the success of previous types such as the Colibri and Coleopter MAVs, the XQ-138 Hypermaneuverable UAV, the XQ-381/FAQ-381 Rubber Design, and also draws some features from the Russian AA-12 (R-77) "Amraamski" (high control authority grid/lattice fins).

Revolutionary Missions:
• Collocated Close Air Support (CCAS)
• PSYOP, force multiplier, perch & rest/stare/listen etc.
• Visual, Acoustic & RF signature suppression
• Hovering Precision Weapon (HPW) & stalking mines
• Counter IED, BDA, lethal/nonlethal counterpiracy
• High Precision Air Rapid (HiPAR) Cargo Delivery System
• Supersonic capability
