Thales has been selected by Dassault Aviation, prime contractor for the Neuron programme, to develop the datalink system for the European unmanned combat air vehicle (UCAV) technology demonstrator. The Neuron programme is a cooperative project involving France, Greece, Italy, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.

The system proposed by Thales will connect the ground-based control station with the UCAV using high-rate and low-rate datalinks:

The high-rate datalink will be compliant with the NATO interoperable datalink standard STANAG 7085 and will enable secure transmission of large volumes of application data, including video, imagery and radar, as well as air vehicle command and control data.

The low-rate datalink will incorporate transmission security technologies to guarantee a high level of data integrity. It will operate in a different frequency band to the high-rate link, further enhancing the integrity of the overall transmission system.

This contract illustrates the coherent approach to programmes launched by European defence organisations, as the Neuron datalink system will build directly on the technical and technological know-how gained through the Reco NG, airborne reconnaissance pod programme, as well as work on NATO Stanag 7085.

“Thales will be working with the other programme partners and under Dassault Aviation leadership to provide some of the key technological building blocks for Europe’s Neuron demonstrator,” said Pierre-Yves Chaltiel, Vice President, Land & Joint Systems Division, France. “As a centre of excellence in network-centric warfare, Thales will also contribute to technical, operational and deployment concept studies for the future air vehicle.”
