Airbus Defense and Space and DCNS have signed a cooperation agreement to develop a ship-based helicopter UAS capability. This technological partnership will help to speed up the market release of the TANAN vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) tactical helicopter UAS, as it takes into account the naval sector’s requirements and the aircraft’s efficient integration onto all types of armed vessels from the outset.
The partnership will enable the TANAN UAS to be integrated into the ship’s combat system. This includes the definition of its mission system and the improvement of situational assessment thanks to the data received from the various sensors on board TANAN. The work encompasses the physical integration of TANAN onto the ship, including the positioning and compatibility of the antenna system, the landing deck, the harpoon and grid, the docking and securing of the UAS in the hangar, as well as the related support.
