First unmanned aerial system designed for flight in non-segregated airspace, its characteristics will include mission modularity for operational superiority in intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, both wide area and in-theatre.

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.

The MALE RPAS is the first unmanned aerial system designed for flight in non-segregated airspace and will be capable of performing a range of missions in intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, both wide area and in theatre. A twin-turboprop propulsion system will deliver energy for the mission system and provide proper redundancy to limit restrictions when operating over European densely populated ground and unrestricted airspaces.
