The French Defense Innovation Agency (AID) has approved a drone project called Larinae (The Seagull).
The project was submitted to Nexter Arrowtech, EOS Technologie and TRAAK on June 16, 2023.
The project was launched with the aim of developing a reconnaissance drone capable of remote reconnaissance.
Larinae can fly up to 50 km and stay airborne for up to 1 hour.
This aircraft can fly high while searching for and chasing enemies.
It can attack targets such as tanks or enemy fortifications thanks to its multi-purpose air-to-surface missiles.
The platform can detect large targets from a distance of 15 km during the day and 3 km at night.
Once a target is detected, the operator can decide whether to continue reconnaissance or launch a direct attack.
Larinae’s development combines EOS Technology’s capabilities with its drone development expertise.
While Nexter manufactures penetrating warheads (EFP) and TRAAK for advanced navigation systems.
