Force Multiplier is an on demand contract Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance platform for both domestic and international special missions.

Specifically designed to provide an operational service that meets the immediate needs of both government and private customers in terms of maritime and ground surveillance, Force Multiplier is an aircraft with an endurance of more than 10 flight hours
The operations will include Search And Rescue operation including life raft deployment, immigration control, surveillance of large events, as well as border surveillance for example.

Users are able to reserve flight hours, offering them an on-demand operational platform, without acquisition or maintenance support costs. Thales, as system supplier, will provide the SEARCHMASTER® multirole surveillance radar, offering an unbeatable level of performance, and the AMASCOS® multi-mission system, with its extended, scalable surveillance capabilities, as well as the ground station. As a result, it will be possible to prepare mission data and share the tactical situation in real time. In addition, operators will have the opportunity to replay and analyse their missions.

The aircraft will also be available for training of future flight crews, as customers participate in platform acquisition programmes.
