Onyx announced today it will be offering a NightHawk QS3 special purpose aircraft for its defense clients.
Built with special purpose aviation in mind, NightHawk QS3 is a long-endurance special purpose aircraft with low acoustic and low thermal signatures, available in manned and unmanned versions.
Engineered for optimal performance in expeditionary scenarios and low-intensity conflict operations, NightHawk QS3 offers unparalleled capabilities in the field. Its exceptional endurance and ability to carry mission-critical payload for days rather than hours makes it ideally suited for long missions to hard to reach places around the globe.
“NightHawk QS3 is a strategic add-on to our innovative airborne solutions portfolio designed to further our nation’s strategic defense capabilities in modern-day environments, and we look forward to presenting this incredible airborne capability to our clients,” Mike Cadice, Founder and Chief Innovation Officer at Onyx.
“We are humbled to lead the way in the special purpose airborne solutions space, serving our defense clients in forward-focused and impactful ways,” said Zach Pyle, CEO at Onyx Industries.
NightHawk QS3's advanced aerodynamic design, high-efficiency turbo-diesel engine, and carbon fiber construction provide a range of up to 5,000 NM at a speed of 140 knots with 48-hours of endurance with more than 500 pounds of payload, when operating as an "optionally manned" aircraft. The outer wing panels can be removed in less than 30 minutes, making NightHawk QS3 an ideal platform to be rapidly transported via a C-17 or other deployment means.
“We are extremely thrilled to have partnered with Onyx to help us grow and expand, as we continue to innovate,” said Andrew Schaaf, Managing Director at NightHawk Aircraft.
