Description: The Tanan is a ship-based unmanned rotorcraft developed jointly between Airbus Defence and Space and DCNS for vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) to fit into a wide variety of vessels. The new aircraft will operate integrated into the ship's combat system. Harpoon and grid mechanism is provided to coking and securing the UAS in the hangar. Airbus Defence and Space is responsible for the production of the aircraft, payloads, datalink and the control station. DCNS is responsible for the integration of Tanan on the ship and its combat system as well as aircraft's modules required for the operation from the ship. Unmanned aircraft are intended to increase the detection range and the ability to accurately identify threats. The 350 kilogram rotary-wing aircraft will be powered by a single diesel engine. The Tanan was unveiled at Euronaval in October 2014.
