CHARLOTTE, N.C., Aug. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- UTC Aerospace Systems will showcase new and advanced products for unmanned aerial and underwater applications, suitable for defense, law enforcement, fire-fighting and security applications at the AUVSI show, which takes place in Washington, DC on August 12-15. UTC Aerospace Systems is a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).
Prominently featured on booth 3013 will be the Cloud Cap Technology TASE gimbals, which offer the highest performance with the lowest SWaP (size, weight and power) in the industry. This includes the recently announced TASE 400DXR (Daylight Extended Range), which brings long range ISR to the tactical level. Cloud Cap Technology Piccolo autopilots, the industry standard in open architecture autopilots, providing feature rich capabilities with superior performance and reliability will also be on display.

In addition, fuel cell power and energy systems will be highlighted for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) and unmanned underwater vehicles (UUV). At the core of these systems is a fuel cell, currently in production and qualified for operation on a submarine, which provides a safe and reliable system solution with endurance greater than advanced batteries.
For the small UAS market, UTC Aerospace Systems will showcase their Vireo™ UAS, along with their terrain proximity (TERPROM) navigation software and inertial sensors suitable for small and large UAS to aid guidance, navigation and control.Sensors Unlimited short-wave infrared (SWIR) cameras will be on display.
