Aliaca - Light tactical UAS - Survey Copter

Light UAS


Designed for both civil and military purposes, the light tactical UAS Aliaca meets the needs expressed by public decision-makers, civil stakeholders and the armed forces for a light UAS with a low logistical footprint which can operate in constrained spaces.

The system's added value lies in its proven, automated net recovery system, which can be integrated into surface vessels regardless of whether they are equipped with a helicopter platform, or deployed from the land for coastal or land missions and operations. Its small logistical footprint makes it an essential tool on board, and an asset ashore for overcoming logistical constraints such as a semi-prepared runway.

Certified and in operation with the French Navy in the frame of the SMDM program (Small Tactical UAS for the Navy) in its electric configuration (Aliaca Evo), the light tactical UAS Aliaca has been developed into a range of products (Aliaca line) with a piston engine configuration (Aliaca ER) based on the same structure.

The Aliaca family can be used for a wide range of intelligence, surveillance and inspection missions or operations, in a maritime, coastal or land environment and with thermal or electric propulsion. Its two configurations offer a range of capabilities.
