Cassidan presents TANAN 300
Cassidian presents its TANAN300 new-generation compact VTOL Tactical UAS for maritime and land missions at Euronaval.
Designed in close collaboration with potential customers in order to match their specific requirements, TANAN 300 is a real ‘eye in the sky' thanks to a full HD imagery chain and to its main payload which allows an easy switch between EO/IR (Electro-Optical and Infra-Red) high-definition cameras.
TANAN 300 is designed to be flexible and also includes very high-capability payloads, such as an AIS (Automatic Identification System), an IFF (Identification Friend or Foe) system, a maritime radar, an electronic surveillance system and a direction finder, to suit all needs.
It is intended to carry out Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition and Reconnaissance (ISTAR) missions for armies and navies, as well as civilian assignments. It can endure missions lasting over eight hours while providing full HD colour video in real time at maximum range.
The TANAN 300 is capable of completing missions with ranges of up to 100 nm/180 km and a 50 kg payload.
Packed inside a shelter or a vessel, the TANAN 300 overall system is manageable by one operator and can be deployed in unprepared areas and/or at sea. The TANAN 300 is specifically equipped for operating at temperatures of between -20°C and +50°C and in challenging weather conditions.
The demonstrator's first flight took place in 2010 and development is currently continuing according to schedule.
