Paris. 14 June 2016. Delair-Tech, a designer of professional drone solutions, and ECA, a subsidiary of Groupe Gorgé, specialized in high-tech robotics, announced their partnership for the development of a tactical mini-drone specifically for the defense sector.
The novel partnership of a French agency and an SME make it possible to combine agility and innovative capacity with a commercial network and expertise in the world-renowned defense sector. A joint offer of a tactical mini-drone for the defense sector Within the framework of their partnership, Delair-Tech and ECA are launching a joint offer of a long-endurance tactical mini-drone specifically for the defense sector.
The first product offered in this framework is the DT26M, a Mini-Drone Reconnaissance System, completely designed and produced in France. This observation drone can be deployed in less than 10 minutes from any theater of operation. Silent and discreet, it makes it possible to carry out reconnaissance missions within a 30 km radius of action. Its cutting-edge gyrostabilized turret gives it observation capabilities unequaled for this size drone.
Used both to ensure the security of a vehicle convoy as well as the success of the most complex land operations, the mini observation drones are indispensable tools for making tactical decisions on land. The solution offered by Delair-Tech and ECA has long been proven under extreme conditions (desert, tropical, and mountainous climates, cold, dust, wind, etc.) This mini-drone, of composite materials weighing 15 kg, is capable of flying for 2-1/2 hours, and is equipped with visible cameras and infrared, making it possible, for example, to see humans up to 2.5 km away, or vehicles from up to 10 km away.
