Close Air Support (CAS)

When friendly troops are in close contact with the enemy, Scorpion has the power to quickly sprint at 450 KTAS to the scene, find, target, and employ appropriately scaled kinetic effects. Using multi-spectral sensors, on board processing, and the ability to self-designate targets through the weather for precision engagement, Scorpion’s diverse ISR and Strike capabilities ensure mission success.

Irregular Warfare Support Missions

Scorpion has the unique capability to provide manned, persistent surveillance, tactical command and control and place scaled effects on targets, all in the one mission. Whether planned or emergent targets, Scorpion uses its electro-optical/infrared sensor to receive, refine and process off-board information to coordinate command and control agencies with local ground forces, then deliver a wide range of guided weapons on target, while remaining on-station.

Maritime Security Missions

Scorpion is a force multiplier for maritime patrol with on-station times exceeding five hours and area coverage enabled by jet speeds. Equipped with an array of sensor and communication packages, Scorpion allows coordination among multiple types of communication devices used by law enforcement. This capability enables nations to record and affordably patrol territorial waters like never before.

Aerospace Control Alert Missions

After the contact of an unidentified low and slow aircraft, Scorpion can quickly scramble, launch, and reach 400+ knots for the intercept. Scorpion can identify aircraft at range through on-board and off-board systems. With maneuvering speeds as low as 100 knots, Scorpion can effectively escort the aircraft while maintaining a relative position where scaled “non-lethal to lethal” effects can be employed.

Tactical Jet Training

Complex, multi-faceted training of future tactical aircrews demands an aircraft that effectively transitions Intermediate pilots through Advanced Jet Training and also affordably “downloads” 4th and 5th generation training tasks. With dual cockpits and a modular adaptable mission system, Scorpion is the ideal platform to train tomorrow’s tactical aviators in multiple platform and operational employment disciplines from the basics of jet operations to employing multi-spectral sensors and precision guided weapons.

Humanitarian Assistance / Disaster Response

Following a natural disaster or catastrophic event, the re-establishment of communication systems can often take days and weeks. Enter Scorpion with its ability to function as a critical communication node to support first responders, while also providing on-scene persistent and wide-area surveillance. With it’s ability to self-deploy and on-station time exceeding five hours, the manned Scorpion re-establishes communications and brings support to first responders within hours of an event.

Border Security Missions

Scorpion provides an ideal platform for National Defense and Homeland Security forces to conduct border security operations. This manned aircraft can perform wide-area surveillance and provide real-time video of select points of interest to law enforcement authorities, delivering unprecedented capability and operational flexibility across the national airspace. Its multiple payload options for sensors and scalable payloads, combined with on-station times exceeding five hours, make it perfect for National Guard units or customs and border protection operations.

Counter Narcotics Missions

Scorpion is positioned to meet mission requirements for counter narcotics and counter trafficking missions with the ability to launch from 100 to 200 miles out, remain on station up to five hours, and provide full-motion video records that meet the legal standards of international courts. Simultaneously, Scorpion can receive linked information and provide line-of-sight communications to deliver accurate geographic location information to law enforcement or defense agencies that are on-scene to counter transnational threats.
