Nice move for Parrot. The French manufacturer has just won a five-year contract with the French Army. The Directorate General of Armaments (DGA) has signed for 300 mini-drones expected for the month of June.
This equipment is intended for the three armies: air and space, land and navy, but the army will be the biggest user. They will be used for intelligence and surveillance missions.
Inaudible over 130 meters
The Anafi-USA model was chosen. It is a quadricopter weighing less than 500 grams with 32 minutes of autonomy in flight. It would be inaudible over 130 meters, while being able to detect targets with precision from two kilometers away. Finally, it would be extremely easy to use and accessible to non-specialists after a short training.
This should allow Parrot to raise its head after several years of difficulty. The company had to cut several hundred jobs in 2017 and refocus on the professional market.
