Unmanned ground vehicles, robots and tactical military drones are considered the future of warfare. Tactical Drones, in particular, are increasingly finding applications in sophisticated defense scenarios like military research, intelligence gathering at borders and on battlefields to carry out combat missions beyond enemy lines. One of the key advantages of tactical military drones is their quick deployability in tough high-altitude terrains with extreme weather conditions. Tactical drones, especially, the rugged military drones are proving to be immensely effective for ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance) and are being widely used by Defense and special forces worldwide. Tactical Military drones enable the forces to quickly launch time-sensitive missions while reducing risk to the lives of pilots and soldiers.
Tactical Drones – Military Drones Designs
Mistral offers various types of Tactical Drones and Military Drones for emergency management and mission-critical operations. These rugged military drones are designed to meet the demanding needs of Border Security and Armed Forces and are ideal for a range of applications such as high-altitude logistics delivery, ISR, mine detection and neutralization, combat, and target decoys, among others. We offer customized tactical drones based on user-specific requirements, to meet the varying demands of weight, flight altitude, payload capability, endurance, arm and ammunition integration, electro-optical features and ruggedness.
The advanced AI technologies and visual algorithms in Mistral’s tactical drones and tactical military drones aid intelligent mapping of defined geographical areas; detect and classify objects of interest at low light and harsh weather conditions. These cutting-edge features make our tactical military drones ideal for cross-border surveillance and to gather crucial situational awareness during a conflict and gather intelligence on border activities. The rugged tactical drones are designed to transport in small SUVs and trucks and can be deployed in minutes from any terrain. These tactical drones have a varying operational range of 3-10 km and can fly at an altitude of 5000 to 20,000 feet, based on the payload, Electro-optical sensor specifications.
Tactical Military Drones – Flight Modes
Tactical military drones are equipped with advanced technology that enables them to perform a variety of functions, including surveillance, reconnaissance, target acquisition, and even weapon delivery. Mistral offers Tactical military drones in a range of sizes and capabilities, from small quadcopters to large Hexacopters.
The tactical drones from Mistral come with three flight modes, Manual, fully Autonomous and pre-mapped Autonomous. The user can define the mode of flight based on operational needs in these rugged Military Drones. For instance, for periodic cross-border surveillance at a defined area, a fully autonomous mode would be ideal. However, during a conflict wherein every second is crucial, Manual or semi-autonomous operation would provide quick insights to the operator. In case of link loss (loss of connectivity with GCS) due to signal jamming or extreme weather conditions, the Auto Return Home feature aids the drones to return to the launch safely. Mistral also offers Tactical Military drones for distant surveillance with a range of up to 45kms, especially with stealth capabilities. These ultra-lite ultra-portable military drones are among the best tactical drones in the market.
Mistral’s rugged tactical drones come with ergonomically designed, user-friendly Ground Control Stations (GCS). The multi-layered safety protocols ensure secure communication between GCS and the drones. Based on the application and use case, the GCS can be designed to have single or dual displays to provide maximum usability and operational convenience to the operator on the field.
