Cutting-Edge Drone Technology: Aeronautics Secures Greek MoD Contract for Orbiter 3 Unmanned Aerial Systems

Aeronautics Ltd. – a top company in designing, creating and manufacturing Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) for the international security and defence markets – has declared a deal to provide many of its Orbiter 3 systems to the Greek Ministry of Defence.

The contract is part of the vast agreement between the Israeli and Greek Ministries of Defence, with a value of around 370 million Euros, for the purchase of Rafael’s Spike anti-tank guided missiles.

Dan Slasky, Aeronautics Group’s CEO, stated: “We are pleased to participate in this significant partnership with Rafael in the G2G agreement with the Greek MoD. This partnership shows the technological harmony and the tight business integration between the two firms. We are also grateful to the Israeli Ministry of Defence, which has made significant efforts to facilitate the deal, and to the Greek Ministry of Defence for showing trust in Aeronautics’ solution.”

As per the contract, Rafael will provide an advanced system that provides significant operational benefits on the modern battlefield. While the Orbiter 3 systems detect, recognise and identify (DRI) the target, the Spike missiles, launched from air, sea, or land, can promptly close the sensor-to-shooter loop, using the ‘Fire Weaver’ C4I system. The fast Sensor-to-Shooter process that incorporates innovative technologies allows mission accomplishment.

The Orbiter 3 is a small tactical unmanned aerial system and regarded as one of the top systems in its category globally, providing excellent performance for both defence and HLS applications. Orbiter 3 operational capabilities include advanced ISTAR features, runway-independent, long endurance, the ability to carry various payload types, advanced image processing, a small logistical footprint, navigation even in a GPS-denied environment, and the ability to endure harsh weather conditions.
