Aeronautics Ltd., a leading Israeli defense company, has recently announced a new contract with the Greek Ministry of Defense for the supply of dozens of Orbiter 3 unmanned aerial systems (UAS).
The deal is part of a broader agreement between the Greek and Israeli Defense Ministries, valued at around 370 million euros, for the provision of Rafael’s Spike missiles.
Orbiter 3 is a small tactical UAS widely recognized for its superior performance in both civilian and military applications. With advanced ISTAR (Information, Surveillance, Reconnaissance and Targeting) capabilities, great endurance, and the ability to carry various payloads, Orbiter 3 is considered one of the world’s leading systems in its class.
It can also navigate environments even during GPS jamming and harsh weather conditions, making it an ideal choice for challenging missions.
Under the agreement, Rafael will provide an advanced solution that will offer a significant operational advantage on the modern battlefield for the Hellenic Army. The Orbiter 3 will detect, identify, and target the objective, while Spike missiles, launched from air, sea, or land, can strike in concert, utilizing the C4I ‘Fire Weaver’ system.
Dan Slasky, CEO of Aeronautics Group, expressed his pride in being part of this significant cooperation with Rafael in the G2G agreement with the Greek MOD. This partnership demonstrates the technological synergy and the close business integration between the two companies. He also thanked the Israeli Ministry of Defense for its efforts to facilitate the agreement and the Greek Ministry of Defense for its confidence in Aeronautics’ solution.
