TEKEVER, a provider of unmanned aerial systems (UAS) in Europe, introduced its newest drone the ARX in San Diego, U.S. on Tuesday (Apr. 23). The company touted its newest product as capable of coordinating a swarm of smaller drones from a primary mother drone 

“We’re thrilled to announce the ARX, which is one of the world’s most advanced drones in its class. It marks a significant step forward for TEKEVER. It is our first drone to include swarm capabilities, which enables it to carry out complex missions, revolutionizing surveillance, and search & rescue operations in both the civilian and military worlds,” said Ricardo Mendes, CEO of TEKEVER.

“At TEKEVER, we are constantly innovating to develop the most advanced intelligence solutions so we can continue to be the UAS partner of choice for organizations undertaking critical environmental, commercial, and geopolitical matters,” he added.

Slated for commercial release in 2025, the drone is equipped with onboard AI/ML capabilities and a fully modular payload configuration supporting various sensors and cargo. This is expected to offer significant enhancements in surveillance and life-saving capabilities for both civilian and military applications.

With a 600kg maximum takeoff weight, the ARX offers long-range endurance, advanced connectivity, and adaptable payload configurations. It aims to address challenges in wide-area surveillance, facilitating missions at sea and on land.

The drone offers versatile payload options, including heavy lift, sensors, and cargo, with a variety of sensor choices like EO/IR, MS/HS, LIDAR, AIS, ADSB, SAR SIGINT/COMINT/ELINT, and more. Integrated within a compact platform with minimal logistics requirements, it targets challenges in the long-range market.

Part of TEKEVER’s UAS family including the AR3, AR4, and AR5 systems, the ARX shares a common architecture for efficient operations and continuous evolution. The ARX Digital Twin streamlines operational processes, aiding simulation, testing, and maintenance.
