Thales and Schiebel to Deliver Innovative Uncrewed Rotary Aircraft Solution to Royal Navy

Date: Issue 121 - April 2023

International navies now find themselves increasingly threatened by a range of hostile platforms, often in congested maritime environments. The ability of an uncrewed rotary aircraft that can launch quickly and then provide long-range mission endurance and the ability to find, fix, track, and identify targets will bring additional protection for the ship and its crew, providing them invaluable time to prepare and respond.

Thales will act as the lead systems integrator for the program that brings together an unrivaled combination of proven UAS capability from Schiebel and a range of high-precision intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance sensors and systems from Thales.
