The Orbiter 2 SUAS is a compact, lightweight man-portable system designed for use at tactical levels. A combat-proven and reliable platform with great performance, the Orbiter 2 SUAS serves a variety of military missions including intelligence gathering, surveillance, target acquisition, and reconnaissance (ISTAR).

Orbiter 2 SUAS can support full intensity warfare missions, and serve operations at low-intensity warfare, counter-insurgency and urban warfare.

Orbiter 2 SUAS is also successfully serving civilian missions in: HLS, border protection, and maritime surveillance. The system is operated and controlled by the Aeronautics proprietary Multi Operation Aerial Vehicle (MOAV) software, an advanced interface developed in-house.

MOAV software is designed to serve a range of UAV platforms, and is compliant with NATO interfaces such as STANAG 4609.

The digital datalink-fitted system has extended endurance of up to 4 hours; payload capacity of 1.5 kg and operational radius of 100 km. The system is fully compatible with industry standards, including STANAG 4586 (NATO) for UAS controls, and H.246 for video streaming.
