Aerospace CH UAV Co Ltd is currently working on a cutting-edge loitering munition inspired by the advanced AR air-to-ground missile series technology. This versatile munition is designed to perform a variety of critical missions on the battlefield, such as acting as a communications relay, disrupting and suppressing radar, delivering precise strikes against time-sensitive targets, and evaluating battle damage.

The loitering munition stands out due to its exceptional endurance, extended range, formidable destructive capabilities, and cost-effectiveness. It can operate independently or seamlessly collaborate with other weapons and systems within an integrated framework.

A leading player in the industry, CH UAV is renowned for its range of CH series drone products, which includes battle-proven models like the CH-3 and CH-4, as well as more powerful versions like the CH-5 and CH-6. Additionally, they offer the stealth-capable CH-7 and the innovative tilt-rotor CH-10. To complement its drone lineup, CH UAV has also developed the AR series air-to-ground missiles, which encompass a range of drone-deployed missiles weighing between 10 to 100 kg.

The company's new loitering munition is expected to be fully compatible with their existing CH series drones, further enhancing their capabilities and offering greater flexibility on the battlefield.
