Background: Ern is the Serene Power Company's newest foray into the world of UAVs. It is designed to be a simple, affordable, platform, capable of being used by military and civilian operators alike for scientific research, rescue, and military operations. For this purpose it makes use of the maximum available number of COTS (Commercial Off The Shelf) parts, engines, and electronics. The Ern can be disassembled and assembled rapidly in the field, and be used with minimal training by the client's personnel.

Technology: By and large, the Ern is specifically designed to avoid the use of cutting-edge military technology. The only exception to this rule is the use of a climate protection polymer spray which is used to coat the Ern's wings and body. If the wings or fuselage are covered in ice, this allows easy de-icing by peeling off the transparent polymer surface. This, in turn, enables light, radar-transparent composite non-metal materials to be used in the wings, minimizing the radar signature of the Ern as much as possible, creating a radar signature of 0.2 to 0.5 square meters.

For navigation, the Ern makes use of a multi-system SATNAV chip, enabling the reception of signals from a variety of available national SATNAV systems, as well as a digital inertial navigation system in the event that SATNAV signal is lost or jammed. The SATNAV receiver design chosen a geodesic-grade design is intended to minimize jamming losses and achieve accuracy of down to 1 centimeter in an interference-free environment.

The Ern can be either controlled directly through its onboard FPV camera, or programmed for waypoint-based flight, return, and landing. (For take-off, the aircraft utilizes a mini-catapult, and for landing – an auto-expanding parachute that uses a pyrotechnic charge similar to that of an airbag to open rapidly).

As much as possible from the Ern – the engine, the parachute, the FPV camera, etc.

Communications: The standard communications suite of the Ern includes a frequency-hopping (FHSS) encrypred radio capable of transmitting data back to its control station or serving as a repeater for other Ern-class UAV. A secondary encrypted communications radio is used to transmit imagery and video. The Ern is also equipped with a GSM modem which enables it to connect to civilian networks through secure, or unsecure, connections as per the operator's choice, enabling it to be controlled through the Internet (this is probably more useful in non-military settings, but with sufficient security measures, it may be used in a range of creative applications).

Software: The software kit for the Ern can be made compatible with the Shwerpunkt Bastion II battlefield management system and the equivalent systems from Lyran Arms. The operator's laptop also contains a map manager app that enables automatic comparison of photographs taken by the Ern with pre-existing satellite photographs or the commonly available online mapping services.

Payload:[/b ] Clearly the main advantage of the ERN is its modular design. It contains a niche for mounting one of a number of payloads (up to 5 kilograms) which are powered by electricity from its motor. Below is a list of the payloads available from our company, but customer payloads can be easily designed.
[b]ERN-A1 Camera payload:
Included with every drone, this is a modified version of a consumer camera, hardened against vibrations and with the settings adjusted for aerial photography. Data can be stored on the drone or broadcast back to base.
ERN-A2 IR camera payload: This is a basic infra-red camera.
ERN-R Passive radar payload: This is a passive surveillance system, designed to detect enemy radar and broadcast systems and transmit information back to base.
ERN-EW Electronic warfare payload: This payload is designed to detect short range radios and cell phones, as well as spoof cell phones with false cell tower data, enabling enemy information to be harvested. Detects and intercepts cell phone data within 6 km of the platform.
[bERN-A3 PTZ IR payload:[/b] Equipped with a digital pan-tilt-zoom, gyrostabilized, IR camer, enabling higher-quality IR surveillance.
ERN-CC Repeater payload: Serves as a repeater for ground-based radios.
