TEKEVER launches the new AR3, with hot-swappable VTOL and integrated SAR

TEKEVER, the leading drone-based maritime surveillance provider in Europe, launched the new version of its proven AR3 system, now with Hot-Swappable VTOL with integrated Synthetic Aperture Radar capabilities, during AUVSI Xponential in Orlando.

With the new upgrade, the AR3 becomes the most operationally flexible UAS in the market, and the smallest UAS to boast a high performance, dual side looking Synthetic Aperture Radar.

“The new version of our vastly proven AR3 is a modular & transformable platform. Users no longer have to choose between having pure fixed wing assets for longer endurance missions, or fixed wing VTOL assets for more challenging deployment conditions. The AR3 combines both capabilities and provides users with the ability to decide the configuration just moments before takeoff,” explained Ricardo Mendes, TEKEVER’s CEO.

The newly added Synthetic Aperture Radar provides the AR3 with a vastly greater operational range, and the ability to effectively detect, recognize and identify targets under any weather condition. Covering more than 20.000 square nautical miles per mission, the new AR3 is the perfect tool for wide-area surveillance missions.

“Our SAR, which we named GAMASAR in honor of the Portuguese navigator Vasco da Gama, is designed and built by TEKEVER specifically to provide our customers with capabilities that are typically only available through much larger systems. With an extremely reduced logistics footprint, the unprecedented VTOL flexibility and the unique capabilities provided by GAMASAR, the new AR3 is a game changer, that provides our customers with tremendous value and cost effectiveness,” added Ricardo Mendes.
