Skeldar UAS (Unamanned Aerial System) produs de catre SAAB este operational la bordul OPV-ului spaniol BAM Meteoro.

Skeldar va furniza Marinei Spaniole capabilitati de monitorizare in misiunea antipiraterie UE Atalanta desfasurata in Golful Aden.

La inceputul acestui an, Saab a anuntat un contract pentru UAS Skeldar destinat operatiilor maritime.

Mikael Franzén, Director of Saab’s Product Area Tactial UAS, a comentat:

“The Skeldar UAS is operated together with a manned helicopter to enhance the vessel’s surveillance capabilities during its mission to fight piracy as part of the EU Atalanta operation in the Gulf of Aden.”

Inainte de participarea in cadrul misiunii Atalanta au fost efectuate teste de integrare la bordul BAM Relámpago in vecinatatea Insulelor Canare.

“Since signing the first contact we are seeing an increasing interest for Skeldar where more and more potential customers are discovering Skeldar’s unique strengths and features, including air worthiness, heavy fuel engine, high performance and operational capability,” a mai spus Mikael Franzén.

Skeldar este un UAV cu raza scurta-medie, un elicopter fara pilot, care poate fi controlat de la distanta. Skeldar poate fi echipat cu diverse dispozitive pentru misiuni de monitorizare, recunoastere, achizitie de tinte, cartografiere 3D.

  • Cred ca putem spune ca era dronelor in domeniul militar abia acum incepe.
    Datorita a astfeld e sisteme navele mici de sub 1000 de tone vor capata capabilitati noi si vor putea sa duca la bun sfarsit misiuni care inainte necesitau nave de tonaj dublu sau chiar triplu.
    In viitor cred ca Skeldar va capata si “colti” si va fi capabil de mid course update.

  • MISSION PAYLOAD SUITE

    The air vehicle is available with a number of different advanced COTS payloads for information collection and dissemination and has a dual payload capability. The architecture is open for quick integration of future payloads.
