News relating to unmanned aerial systems


a key role in a wide-ranging testing and evaluation campaign that will improve the Air Force’s understanding of how it can employ technology in response to the threat posed by hostile drones.


The RAF will also maintain the ORCUS system as an upgraded national standby capability, to be rapidly deployed anywhere in the country in support of emergency services in the event of a drone- based crisis.


Leonardo Delivers Counter-Drone Technology to Royal Air Force to Support Counter-Unmanned Aerial System Research and Development Program


The Royal Air Force (RAF) will use the Leonardo Counter-Unmanned Aerial System (C-UAS) equipment as part of its ongoing research program to develop the ORCUS C-UAS system. This developing system also provides a national standby capability to support emergency services across the U.K. in crisis situations.


Due to the serious nature of the threat that rogue drones pose to the U.K., the program is considered of high importance to national security, and Leonardo is continuing to deliver equipment and support during the coronavirus pandemic.


Leonardo is a leader in C-UAS technology and is on contract with the U.K. and Italian Armed Forces. Its modular, scalable systems are readily exportable worldwide.


Leonardo in the U.K. has delivered the first of four complete baseline counter-drone systems to the Royal Air Force in support of the next stage of its Counter-Unmanned Aerial System (C-UAS) research and development program. The ORCUS system is now playing


The threat posed by rogue drones is being taken extremely seriously by the Ministry of Defence and therefore the C-UAS study program, managed by Defence Equipment & Support Future Capability Group, is considered highly important to the security of the nation. Leonardo is working hard to ensure that the program continues to be delivered despite the disruption caused by the global coronavirus pandemic.


The modular systems provided by Leonardo for the study will allow the RAF to evaluate a range of capabilities including advanced radar, electro-optic and radio frequency sensors, and an electronic attack countermeasure. In due course, further systems will be integrated for testing and evaluation. Throughout, RAF Force Protection operators will be examining the most effective ways to detect, track, identify and defeat rogue drones. In the long run, the research and development program will inform the requirements for a core RAF counter-drone capability, intended to protect air bases around the UK.


Elements of Leonardo’s C-UAS equipment were previously operated by the RAF Force Protection Force in 2018 and 2019, following drone sightings at Gatwick and Heathrow airports, allowing airport operations to resume.


Leonardo offers its scalable and modular C-UAS systems to military and civil customers internationally. The company has been contracted for C-UAS equipment for the Italian Army and Air Force and is in discussions with other potential customers worldwide.


mini Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS), successfully completed a series of environmental qualification tests ahead of the delivery of more than a thousand of units to an army in Southeast Asia. As announced on October 6, 2019, the Company was awarded a $153 million contract to provide a networked multi- layered UAS array to an army in Southeast Asia, including more than 1,000 THOR VTOL mini-UAS.


THOR VTOL Completes Environmental Qualification Tests Ahead of Delivery of 1,000 Units


Elbit Systems’ THOR, a multi-rotor Vertical Take-off and Landing (VTOL)


40 Sept/Oct 2020


The environmental qualification tests measured the operational durability of the THOR VTOL mini-UAS under a range of extreme environmental conditions and its capability to withstand the physical stress


requirements under the MIL-STD-810. The tests demonstrated the capability of THOR to maintain operability in temperatures varying from minus 40ºC up to 65ºC , withstand hard gusting rain and rough vibrations, and resist penetration and damage from blowing sand and dust.


The THOR VTOL mini-UAS is designed for surveillance and reconnaissance missions over land and at sea. Electrically propelled, THOR is capable of carrying up to three kg of payloads and has a flight duration capability of up to 75 minutes of operation, a maximum range of 10 kilometers and a flight ceiling of up to 2,000 feet.
