Thales reinforces its commitment to supporting Malaysian maritime security by securing a contract to deliver the Fulmar UAS system to the Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency.
Fulmar, a small, high performance, fixed wing UAS, is to be installed on six New Generation Patrol Crafts (NGPC), being constructed by Destini Shipbuilding and Engineering Sdn. Bhd. The maritime design of Fulmar allows the aircraft to take-off and land, whilst the ship is in motion, a key requirement of the MMEA. This capability offers an unrivalled competitive advantage to other systems in the market.
Fulmar will extend the operational capabilities of the Malaysian maritime surveillance fleet, proving a broad range of operational capabilities including counter-piracy, anti-smuggling operations, fisheries policing and border surveillance. Automatic detection and tracking systems and Automatic Identification Systems (AIS) deliver unrivalled high performance surveillance on a flexible platform.
– The Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency selects Thales’s Fulmar UAS to equip six New Generation Patrol Crafts.
– The Fulmar system offers rapid deployment and retrieval, with minimal interference to the ship’s operations whilst in motion.
– The system offers high performance surveillance features such as Automatic Detection and Tracking and Automatic Identification.
