A New Era in Military Surveillance: Aeronautics Wins Greek MoD Contract for Orbiter 3 Drones

Aeronautics Ltd. – a global leader in the design, development, and production of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) for homeland security and worldwide defense markets – has declared a deal to provide numerous Orbiter 3 systems to the Ministry of Defense in Greece.

This deal is part of a substantial agreement, amounting to around 370 million Euros, between the Israeli and Greek Ministries of Defense for the purchase of Rafael’s Spike anti-tank guided missiles. Dan Slasky, CEO of Aeronautics Group, said: “We are honored to be part of this significant partnership with Rafael in the G2G contract with the Greek MoD. This collaboration highlights the technological synergy and close business integration between the two firms.

We are also grateful to the Israeli Ministry of Defense, which has invested significant efforts in facilitating the agreement, and to the Greek Ministry of Defense for showing confidence in the Aeronautics’ solution.” Under the agreement, Rafael will offer an innovative solution that provides a significant operational advantage on the modern battlefield.

The Orbiter 3 systems identify, detect, and recognize the target (DRI), while the Spike missiles, launched from the air, land, or sea, can quickly close the sensor-to-shooter loop by using the ‘Fire Weaver’ C4I system. The rapid sensor-to-shooter process, using advanced technologies, allows mission success.

The Orbiter 3 is a small, tactical unmanned aerial system and is considered one of the top systems worldwide in its category, providing excellent performance for defense and HLS applications. The key features of the Orbiter 3 operational performance include advanced ISTAR capabilities, long endurance, runway-independent, carrying various payloads, advanced image processing, small logistical footprint, navigation in GPS-denied environments, and the ability to withstand harsh weather conditions.
