When you think of budget dollars and the allocation thereof, into the forseeable future, look to ISR. And the UAS will be the workhorse at all levels with specific focus on the man packable platforms.
At this years DSEi, SELEX Galileo announced ISTAR an open architecture for Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS). skyISTAR will be open, flexible and platform/payload agnostic, making it adaptable to an unlimited number of potential user requirements.
skyISTAR builds on SELEX Galileo’s wealth of experience in all aspects of UAS and integrated system design. The company’s work on its Falco tactical UAS has resulted in an in-depth understanding of UAS mission systems, sensor integration and ground control technologies.
Ten years of experience with the Airborne Tactical Observation and Surveillance (ATOS) system and work on the Eurofighter Typhoon’s Praetorian defensive aid suite has provided SELEX Galileo with the learning needed to field integrated ISTAR solutions and provide critical sensor information to crews in an easy-to-understand way.
