Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) are increasingly integrating into today’s airspace, providing unrivalled intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance data for both military and civil applications. At Airbus, our UAS solutions play a key role in defence, humanitarian and environmental missions all over the world.
Our UAS solutions
European MALE RPAS
The unveiling of the first full-scale model of the European Medium Altitude Long Endurance unmanned aerial system at ILA Berlin Air Show is a showcase for combined European technological excellence.
This high-altitude pseudo-satellite (HAPS) is the first unmanned aircraft of its kind to fly in the stratosphere. Capable of flying for months at a time, it combines the endurance of a satellite with the flexibility of a UAV.
This UAS, suitable for operation on naval ships, can perform missions requiring a +50-km range and necessitating a three-hour endurance. It can conduct several types of missions ahead of the ships, including Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR), target tracking and notification, search-and-rescue and anti-piracy actions.
This compact, multi-mission UAS operates alongside other ship-borne naval assets, providing a clearer tactical picture and added search-and-rescue power.
This local positioning system enables manned and remotely piloted aerial vehicles (RPAS) to determine their relative position in the harshest environmental conditions. The independent navigation system contributes to easier and safer take-off and landing procedures in GPS-shaded environments that lack reference points or visual cues.
This distributed network of intelligence connects unmanned aerial systems, enabling them to act as force multipliers for the manned aircraft. This helps to enhance the team’s capabilities and keep the pilot out of harm’s way.
