Paris Air Show: Thales unveils Spy’Ranger 550 mini-UAS

Posted 18 June 2019 · Add Comment

Paris Air Show: Thales has unveiled Spy’Ranger 550, a new addition to its range of mini Unmanned Air Systems (UAS) for tactical surveillance and intelligence, at the Paris Air Show.



Deployable in just 20 minutes, the Spy’Ranger 550’s 50-kilometre range and five hours of autonomy, even under highly demanding temperature and altitude conditions, provide a decisive tactical advantage.
   
Equipped with a state-of-the-art image chain, the system’s optronics payload will ultimately be deployable with other types of payloads to provide the intelligence that armed forces need at every decisive moment.

At a time when digital technologies are increasingly shaping the battlefield of the future, the need for armed forces to boost their intelligence-gathering capability is becoming ever more acute. For units deployed in the demanding conditions of a theatre of operations, having the tech to gain an understanding of the terrain and the forces in the field is key.
