Thales is a leader in the fast growing market of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS). We have over 40 years of experience in Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance innovation on which we have build our UAS systems and services. We have delivered Europe’s largest UAV programme, Watchkeeper, are leading the development of future UAS capabilities around the world and have 100,000 hours of operational flying experience.
UAS are playing an ever more important role in defence planning. They provide situation awareness to commanders to enable better decision making and timely reaction. These autonomous systems removes the man from the battlefield by putting the “pilot” on the ground. They provide critical support to forces on the ground to inform and protect.
UAS provide long-term persistent airborne surveillance, ideally suited to both military and civil applications. Thales UAS are supporting international regulatory initiatives to pave the way for integration into civil airspace, for which their potential applications are endless.
Thales can offer complete UAS solutions to your Unmanned ISR requirements and individual products to build your UAS capability.
