The biggest challenges for regular armies and security forces lie in the struggle to neutralize asymmetric threats, including non-state forces equipped with conventional defence capabilities. With no respect for international laws or geographical boundaries, these forces are able to project their power anywhere, even within our own countries, and are a very real threat to civilian population, critical infrastructure and essential operators.
 
In this context, Unmanned Air Systems (UAS) have come to play an increasingly role in imagery information gathering for security force, border control services and certain critical infrastructure operators.
 
Thales has worked for on UAS for more than ten years and proposes safe, dependable solutions drawing on proven systems integration expertise and a full understanding of the key technologies involved in the new generation of UAS.
