The Patroller System


The Patroller system may set itself apart with its superior flight autonomy of over 14 hours, but it also meets all of your other operational requirements (discretion, ease of implementation, robustness, tactical utility and ease of integration into airport and aerial traffic).  Its modularity and open architecture offer a completely scalable system. The Patroller's composite structure is EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) certified. Very robust, it is equipped with reinforced retractable landing gear that enable it to take off and land automatically using short runways. This multi-sensor drone has a low radar, heat, and noise signature thanks to its nearly silent engine. Lastly, to maintain its high level of availability, Safran Electronics & Defense offers a global support service that includes training programs and tools for diagnostics, operational simulations and training.


The Patroller system has carried out numerous civil and military missions:

  • intelligence
  • surveillance of borders, coasts and sensitive areas
  • humanitarian aid and peacekeeping operations
  • protection of ground forces
  • support for air-land response measures
  • artillery guidance
  • territorial protection
  • environmental surveillance
  • etc.

Key performance features of the Patroller system:

  • autonomy: 15 h
  • mission payload: >200kg
  • ceiling: 15,000 feet / 4,500m
  • speed: 100 to 200km/h
  • landing gear: reinforced and retractable
