1 Presentation on Denel Dynamics UAV’s (IDEAS 2014)
02 Dec’ 2014 On behalf of Mr S. Ntshilele

2 Current Product Offering
Skua High speed target drone Hungwe Small tactical UAV Seeker 200 Tactical, multi-mission, multi-role reconnaissance UAV Seeker 400 Snyper Seeker 400 variant Armed reconnaissance VTOL UAS, Next generation drones Concept studies

3 Snyper UAS Armed Reconnaissance

4 The Solution…………………………
Real time Programmable and Return Flight Control Modes Multiple Payloads up to 100kg and 530mm diameter ELINT (0.5 to 18 GHz) Dual Up & Downlink, Multi-channels with Redundant Control Emergency Parachute Air Traffic Radio, S/IFF Transponder & Tactical Radio to Ground Forces Video Transmitter to Mobile Receivers GPS / INS Navigation with Back up monopulse Range / Azimuth Tracking Denel Dynamics’ solution to this challenge was Seeker 400, a new platform aimed at taking our offering to the next generation of reconnaissance systems. Seeker 400 is a world-class, strategic, persistent, intelligent surveillance and reconnaissance platform that help commanders enhance situational awareness to support their countries’ homeland security needs, border patrol, and maritime patrol, as well as tactical and strategic surveillance. This new system will be is a force multiplier that assists military commanders in reinforcing their activities against, border crossing, poaching and drug trafficking, as well as protection of economic exclusive zone. While currently not equipped with satellite communication, it is designed to be upgradable to SAT COM capability that will allow it to offer extended range as well as offer armed reconnaissance. With increasing role in peace keeping efforts in the rest of Africa, and internal national requirements against various threats, South Africa has also identified a need for an effective surveillance system as a persistent force multiplier. To this extent the SANDF has signed a contract for the supply of the Seeker 400 system from Denel production of which is underway.
