A mid-altitude tactical drone


PHAETON 200 by ASMAN Technology integrates all the components of a surveillance system :

  • A mid-altitude aerial drone offering long operating autonomy. Used to carry out intelligence and surveillance missions (ISR), it is designed in France for export missions
  • A suite of on-board sensors (gyrostabilized electro-optics with day and infrared thermal camera, goniometers, AIS for real-time position of ships)
  • A mobile ground station, a portable Rover type receiver
  • A bidirectional and high speed data link allowing control from the ground of the on-board camera and piloting of the drone.
