Atos to produce in-flight video system for Falcon Albatros aircraft

The ‘Albatros’ aircraft is the French Navy’s future surveillance aircraft.

Dassault Aviation has selected Atos to develop the in-flight video system for the Falcon Albatros aircraft.

Albatros is the future maritime surveillance and intervention aircraft of the French Naval Aviation.

Atos will manage the design and production of the video system and will make sure it complies with the security requirements.

The company will verify the data software’s integrity and validity and ensure it provides secure data and video interconnections.

Atos ‘Digital Security’ head SVP Cyril Dujardin said: “We are proud to assist Dassault Aviation in preparing the Falcon Albatros aircraft, which will support the French government in its maritime surveillance and intervention missions.

“Through this strategic project, we are strengthening our long-standing relationship with Dassault Aviation with a focus on in-flight systems.

“In doing so, we are also applying our expertise to deploy security mission systems and fibre-optic HD videos.”

The Albatros aircraft features an advanced mission system and high-performance sensors, a multifunction radar, multispectral optronic turret, observation windows, as well as a SAR kit release system and dedicated communication systems.

Together, these sensors enable high-definition (HD) video and data streams, producing real-time analysis and completely improving tactical situation awareness.

The aircraft is set to be commissioned in 2025 as part of the Albatros Maritime Surveillance and Intervention Aircraft (AVSIMAR) programme.

The programme is led by the French Armament General Directorate (DGA).

In November 2020, the French Navy said it will procure up to 12 Falcon 2000LXS aircraft from Dassault Aviation as part of the ‘Albatros’ AVSIMAR programme.
