Meggitt Banshee Unmanned Aerial Vehicle
We make all of the composite mouldings for Meggitt’s Banshee target drone. This is, in essence, a very large radio controlled plane with a 2.5m wingspan and a petrol powered pusher propeller that enables it to fly at up to 200 mph.
Carrying on board electronics to make it seem biggger than it is to gunnery and missile radar systems and with the ability to track ‘near misses’ it is used by NATO and other forces as an advanced gunnery target.
Watch the video below to see how we make the wings and fuselages in our advanced manufacturing facility.
