Spy’Ranger has been designed by a team consisting of Europe’s premier drone developers from both Thales and French aerospace SME, Aviation Design. Its development rests along four technological pillars: a robust and innovative electric powered airframe, the most advanced gimbal in the world to optimise observed frontline and range, the highest tactical datalink standard, and a combat-proven command and control software.

The gimbal is a veritable breakthrough in itself. Most drones will not be able to maintain sensor equipment on target during sudden and violent manoeuvres. The Spy’Ranger gimbal will maintain the camera and sensor equipment on target even if the aircraft is pushing the manoeuvring limits of its airframe. This makes it effective under most tactical scenarios, especially when overflying enemy airspace, meaning that whatever the situation, field units will not lose intelligence data during combat.

The tactical datalink is one of the most robust ever deployed on a reconnaissance mini-drone. Communications are secured and encrypted to maintain service availability in jammed conditions and to prevent intrusions into the system. For a unit in the field this level of fidelity is crucial to maintain operational intelligence even in the most difficult operations against well-equipped adversaries.

Finally the combat-proven command and control software provides an effective user interface that allows the drone to be operated by a single pilot and with a reduced training phase.

This intermix of technologies is what renders Spy’Ranger the most suitable surveillance drone for modern day battlefields, both for frontline intelligence gathering and security hovering operations.
