Aircraft Information


Specifications for the SMART-1 variant of BD5J are a little different than other BD5J variants, we have improved the range, the RCS (Radar Cross Section), thrust and custom avionics to improve safety and reliability, the SMART-1 even has auxillary power for client instruments and tracking packages. The SMART-1 is truly a unique and valuable asset for the military and DoD agencies, the SMART-1 has a nominal RCS of -10 db, tested at the Navy Radar Reflectivity Laboratory, to fully test the sensitivity of client instruments and sensors. As the aircraft is a natural threat representation of a cruise missile target on radar, is manned and has a short turn around time there is no better cruise missile surrogate on the market.
