Major Activities – Unmanned Air Vehicle (UAV) Systems

We design and supply integrated UAS for a range of applications. We design and manufacture a variety of UAS platforms, including the Hermes™ 900, 450 and 90 family and Skylark™ families of UAS. We supply UAS training systems with capabilities to simulate payload performance, malfunctions and ground control station operation. We design and supply command and control ground station elements, engines, data links, stabilized electro-optic payloads and electronic intelligence (ELINT) and communications intelligence (COMINT) payloads that can be adapted for various types of UAS. Our UAS technology has also been applied to our USV activities, where we are developing USVs for a range of naval applications.

We perform a broad range of development, supply, lease, support services and training activities relating to UAS. Customers for our UAS include numerous armed forces and other governmental organizations around the world. Examples of recent program awards in this area include a contract for the supply of Hermes 900 UAS for the Brazilian Air Force and selection by the Swiss Federal Department of Defense as the preferred supplier for its UAS 15 new reconnaissance drone program.
