Regulation disappointment for Thales at Autonomous Warrior

13th December 2018 - 13:00 GMT | by Kate Martyr in Salisbury

Despite flying high in France, the Thales Spyranger was left stuck in the Salisbury mud during the Autonomous Warrior Land exercises (AW(L)18) after coming up against British Civil Aviation Authority regulations.

Thales told Shephard that the French Army is looking to have the mini surveillance and reconnaissance UAV operational in 2019 with Initial Operating Capacity in March and ‘properly fielded’ by October.

However, in the UK Thales was left apologising to the MoD after having to pull out, last-minute, of the AW(L)18 Level C final test phase after failing to comprehensively research the requirements to fly in UK airspace.
