Damocles is currently in service on a range of platforms with France and a number of countries in the Middle East, North Africa and Asia and will continue to evolve and co-exist in aircraft fleets alongside the next generations of optronic systems.


Its modular design allows for future upgrades, including integral image-processing software, additional display information and an optional bi-directional data-link to exchange imagery with ground forces.
