Eurodrone- The Next Generation European MALE RPAS
Airbus will apply a Digital Design, Manufacturing and Service (DDMS) system that will pave the way for significant improvements to development times, cost reductions and increases in quality. DDMS will be the backbone of an advanced logistics concept that will be set up so training can start during the development phase and be fully rolled out for initial in-service support.
In November 2020, OCCAR submitted the final draft contract to the participating nations. The aim is to conclude the contract in 2021, conduct the first flight in 2026 and deliver the first aircraft in 2029.
Tactical Unmanned Aerial System, ATLANTE ensures intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions by day and night for ground forces deployed in theatre.
ATLANTE offers several operational capabilities through its basic concept of employment or through the combination of different configurations.
Mini UAS (Survey Copter)
SURVEY Copter, an Airbus subsidiary, fully designs fixed and rotary wings mini-UAVs. SURVEY Copter develops all of its UAV systems: aerial platform, ground station, data link, EO/IR turrets and integrates its own flight computers, implementing the most advanced algorithms developed by its Swiss subsidiary weControl AG.
The KZO is a tactical UAS with a powerful 2-stroke gasoline engine.
It is an unmanned aircraft especially suited for high speed reconnaissance missions. The gathered information is immediately available and can quickly be distributed in the command structure.
Large operational area
KZO can operate to a distance of up to 140 km with a 35 kg payload for up to 5.5 hours at a time
Use KZO for:
Getting the whole picture
KZO provides the real-time situational awareness needed to take charge of the mission before other systems and personnel arrive. It is operational under any weather condition, day and night.
To see without being seen
KZO can observe without being detected itself. It is small, made of composite material and designed for stealth operation. It has very low thermal, optical and acoustic signatures.
Because of its jamming-resistant data transmission system, KZO can provide secure surveillance.
Robust and flexible setup
KZO has multiple launch options. It can be launched by booster or catapult, and land automatically by parachute and airbag.
KZO can operate under stormy weather conditions. It is equipped with a de-icing system and the capability to be launched with cross-winds of 20 m/s.
Booster-assisted launch is possible in winds of up to 15 m/s and in squalls of 10 m/s, regardless of the wind direction.
Since 2009, KZO has served as a tactical UAS for the German Armed Forces in Afghanistan. UAVs delivered by Airbus Defence and Space for the German Armed Forces have proven their value in more than 1,000 missions over the years.
KZO is extremely reliable and has been certified by the German Aviation Authorities. For more information about KZO, please email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
