ThalesThales has unveiled a new small drone technology intended to support intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance operations of military and security organizations.

The company built Spy’Ranger with Aviation Design and is demonstrating the mini-drone at the ongoing Milipol Paris trade show, Thales said Wednesday.

The unmanned aircraft is designed with a gimbal that works to stabilize the drone’s camera and sensor equipment if the aircraft maneuvers in tactical environments.

Thales has also incorporated command-and-control software and a tactical datalink system into the mini-drone for operators to encrypt communications and avoid jamming threats.
