Designed to operate alongside other shipborne naval assets, the VSR700 unmanned aerial system (UAS) currently under development will provide commanders with a larger and clearer tactical picture, greater search and rescue power, and bring to bear a highly capable autonomous platform in times of heightened threats. Its compact size and discreet silhouette enhance stealth, and its payload accommodates a host of long-range, high-performance sensors – the optimal capability enhancement for modern navies.
The VSR700 is Airbus’ tactical unmanned aerial system (UAS) designed to fulfil the demanding requirements of global navies and those of armies in the 21st century’s contested and highly agile battlefields and seas.
The VSR700 offers the best endurance of any vertical takeoff/landing unmanned aerial vehicle (VUAV) in its class today. Its performance enables it to carry a full tactical load of major, high capability sensors, while its compact size provides multiple options for its assets (i.e. naval helicopter plus several VSR700s) stationed on board frigates and destroyers.

France orders H225Ms and VSR700 prototype in support of helicopter industry
The French Minister of Armed Forces, Florence Parly, has announced that the Armament General Directorate (DGA) has signed an order to purchase eight additional H225Ms and a second VSR700 prototype.
VSR700 achieves a first step in flight envelope opening
The opening of VSR700 flight envelope pushed the aircraft’s speed limits, paving the way towards the capabilities needed to perform sea trials in 2022.
VSR700 achieves autonomous takeoff and landing from moving platform
The VSR700 optionally piloted vehicle (OPV) has successfully achieved fully autonomous takeoff and landing (ATOL) approaches, validating its autonomy to and from a moving platform and advancing the VSR700 programme towards its end goal: offering a tactical unmanned aerial system (UAS) with ATOL capacities for global navies. The landing zone: a pitching, yawing platform, mounted on a trailer to simulate the conditions of a moving ship deck.
