At this point, the truth is that it is not the first time that we talk about Thales, a company that today is dedicated to offering services to the aerospace, Defense and Security market. Among the novelties recently presented by this company, today I would like to talk about the new Thales Fulmar X, an unmanned drone that can be configured to adapt to multiple needs so that it can practically be configured to work in any sector of the market, meeting all types of requirements.
This new model, as the title says, rather than a completely new version, what we have is an evolution of the old Fulmar. Going into a little more detail, we find that the Thales Fulmar X is a drone of 3 meter wingspan able to fly during 8 hours in a range of up to 80 kilometers. Regarding the manufacturing materials, this version is committed to the carbon fiber while its launch is done with a kind of catapult. For your landing you have to use a network.
This is what the new evolution of the Thales Fulmar UAV looks like
Among the most interesting hardware equipment, it should be noted that the Thales Fulmar X mounts a EO / IR sensor which makes it possible to carry out night operations while, probably due to military specifications, it is committed to a modular design that allows it to be adjusted to any requirement and thus be able to carry out multiple and varied missions. As in the previous version, there is also room for all kinds of automated systems dedicated to detection and tracking tasks.
This evolution responds to the needs of creating an even more advanced model, not in vain the success achieved by the Spanish company has led them to seek export to other markets in the sector. We have an example in Malaysia, where he has been received with open arms thanks to his versatility and his peculiarities.
