French Defence Procurement Agency (DGA) has selected Thales’s latest-generation Spy’Ranger mini surveillance and reconnaissance Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) to equip the French forces.

Up to 70 mini-UAV reconnaissance systems (SMDR) will be made available from 2018. Each system consists of three mini-UAVs, a ground segment and the associated technical support, the company announced today.

Starting in 2018, Thales will provide French forces up to 210 mini reconnaissance UAVs.

The Spy’Ranger is the new ‘eye in the sky’ for the combined arms tactical group, able to be operated in a standalone mode or connected to a C4I system.

The Spy’Ranger is specifically tailored to the needs of the Armed forces, as well as to those of essential operators.
