Anduril Industries displayed an improved variant of its Ghost unmanned aircraft system (UAS) at DSEI 2023 in London.

The Ghost-X is designed to provide extended intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities over the earlier variant, including in Global Positioning System (GPS)-denied environments.

The improved variant of the modular Ghost has a dual-battery configuration and an upgraded architecture that is designed to maximise payload capacity, range, endurance, and modularity to enable a wider range of payloads to be integrated.

Ghost-X features a rail-centric helicopter design with snap-attachment nose-mounted payloads, batteries, two-bladed main rotors, a three-bladed tail rotor, and three landing legs.

An Anduril official told
Janes
that โ€œthe Ghost-X is designed to bridge the gap between low-endurance quadcopters and a fixed-wing reconnaissance unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV)โ€. The design also incorporates operational feedback from over 1,000 flying hours from various customers, including the UK Ministry of Defence, the official added.
