Thales and French start-up Drone XTR link to offer C-UAS and UTM services

Thales and Drone XTR have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to provide an integrated solution for drone detection.

“Nearly 2,500,000 drones have been registered in France in 2021,” says Thales. “The proliferation of drones in the airspace raises security challenges to prevent accidents or even malicious acts from occurring. ​ As one of the top three countries in the world in terms of drone solutions, France relies on a highly experienced ecosystem to secure the growing airspace. As part of this effort, Thales is partnering with Drone XTR to address emerging needs and offer the best possible solution to the customer in terms of airspace detection and management.

Drone XTR is a French start-up which has been developing electronic signal detection capabilities, enabling the detection of most signal-emitting UAVs. Coupled with the TopSky – UAS solution from Thales, this offer allows users to discriminate between authorized and unauthorized flights but also locate the pilot if needed.

“This solution will be capable of detecting drone intrusions, transmitting information (digital evidence and the position of the pilot) in order to alert the relevant authorities to neutralize the threat. ​ As part of this agreement, Thales and Drone XTR will also work together to pursue commercial opportunities in the field of UTM (Unmanned Traffic Management) and surveillance.”
