The PLS utilizes a simple pneumatic charging solution that gives granular adjustment for vehicle weight or changes in density altitude proving much more efficient than legacy bungee or spring systems. Fully adjustable bipod and support arms make possible operation from uneven surfaces and for a variety of vehicle configurations. The main components are manufactured of composite material keeping the system weight low for a single operator as well as facilitating seaborne use. The entire system can be unpacked and ready for operation in under five (5) minutes with a cycle time between launches of less than one minute. “UAV Solutions has consistently supported Special Operations Forces and National Laboratories with rapid turnaround times and with high-quality products,” stated Billie Ann Davidson, President of UAV Solutions. “The PLS was developed utilizing over a decade and a half of launcher design experience and has created the most capable and cost-effective system available for sUAS.
