- Thales has delivered several UAV systems to the Middle East, each comprising three Spy'Ranger 330 tactical air vehicles, a ground segment and associated accessories and spares.
- The Spy'Ranger 330 mini-UAV system offers armed forces and security operators the most innovative imaging technologies available on the market.
- The systems are used for intelligence, surveillance and critical infrastructure protection missions.
In just a few years, drones have become an essential means of intelligence and surveillance. Thales, as an expert in the field of mini and small drones, with its Spy'Ranger drone solutions, provides an effective response to major local security challenges. Thales delivered several drone systems to the country's Ministry of the Interior and also provided operator training.
Capable of carrying out missions lasting almost three hours with an action range of more than 30 km, the Spy'Ranger 330 mini UAV offers users major technological innovations:
- The Spy'Ball gyrostabilised, high-definition, multi-sensor (EO and IR) optronic payload;
- High-performance image processing from combat aircraft pods such as the TALIOS on the Rafale;
- The micro-TMA high-speed secure data link system;
- The combat-proven Command & Control (C2) Spy'C system;
- A robust and lightweight aerial vehicle with a composite and carbon architecture and structure.
- High-performance, flexible and discreet electric propulsion.
With several thousand hours' flying experience in theatres of operation, the Spy'Ranger 330 is the ideal UAV system for intelligence, reconnaissance and surveillance of sensitive areas and critical infrastructures.
With the Spy'Ranger family, Thales is responding to the current and future challenges facing military and security forces and Operators of Vital Importance. From the protection of crucial sites such as nuclear power plants, energy operators and transport networks to the protection of major events and theatres of external operations, the Spy'Ranger mini-UAV effectively fulfils all types of intelligence, reconnaissance and surveillance missions.
"To ensure the safety of populations at international gatherings, major urban organisations are relying on innovation. Thanks to its innovative imaging technology and ease of use, the Spy'Ranger 330 is the drone that security forces need to monitor activities around critical infrastructures. It will be fully capable of carrying out the surveillance and intelligence missions assigned to it. We are delighted with this contract, which confirms the relevance of our solutions and the international recognition of their effectiveness.” Benoit Plantier, Vice President Optronics and Missile Electronics, Thales.
