Why UAS?

Battle Proven Capabilities

UAS Systems have been extensively and successfully field tested and battle proven by multiple Armed and Security Forces. From 4.000m+ mountains to  active volcanos, UAS systems have been through the hardest operational conditions, assuring resilience and readiness for any type of situation.

Designed for simplicity

TEKEVER UAS systems are designed to be simple to operate while delivering the highest performance. Simplicity lowers the amount of training required, with operators typically trained in less than one week, and helps delivers the best results in under pressure conditions.

Unprecedented Operational Flexibility

Because every second counts, the UAS systems optimise the deployment-operation-recovery cycle. All TEKEVER systems are engineered for simplicity and speed of deploy, with smart mechanisms for payload swapping and configuration management.

Unbeatable Total Cost of Ownership

In a market where maintenance costs can dwarf acquisition costs, UAS technology drastically reduces UAS maintenance complexity and cost. With its modular and interchangeable design, all UAS systems are engineered to maximise system availability while substantially reducing maintenance costs, delivering an unbeatable Total Cost of Ownership.

Multi-platforms and Multi-payloads

The UAS systems offer a wide array of payload types, including multiple types of EO, IR and thermal sensors, LiDAR, Radar or SAR. Additionally, and to provide the best operational support, all systems provide multi-platform support for system control and payload exploitation, allowing users to use traditional RVTs or even latest versions of Android, Windows or iOS devices.

Best-in-class Ground Control Station

TEKEVER UAS technology provides operators with an intuitive, compact and ultraportable ground control station, that can be handled by a single operator, to control just one or multiple systems. The UAS GCS provides real time access to all aircraft and payload data and controls, and can be easily extended with user-specific applications to support unique requirements.

The TEKEVER AR4 was the first ever UAV to fly at the Farnborough Air Show

TEKEVER AR4  was the first autonomous vehicle presented at the Farnborough International Airshow's Aerial Display, making daily outdoor flight demonstrations for a crowd of 150.000 enthusiasts.
