MiniPOP Payload

The MiniPOP payload is built from light-weight  metals like titanium and magnesium. It is utilized in small unmanned air vehicles (UAVs), which require continued existence for accomplishing intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance and targeting (ISTAR) missions. A single soldier can control the entire system.

Shaul Shahar, GM of IAI’s TAMAM Division, has stated that when compared to its forerunners, the overall weight of the MiniPOP has been reduced by 25% and its high-end performance has been retained. He added that the MiniPOP enables their company to provide solutions for electro-optical requirements for UAVs, whose weight lies in the range of 25 kg to 50 kg, thereby profoundly enhancing their mission duration abilities.

It was reported that globally around 300 payloads are utilized by the defense force and this latest payload is a part of MiniPOP family of single Line-Replaceable-Unit, inspection and targeting payloads.
