Elbit Systems UK Selected To Deliver Swarm UAS Capability To UK Ministry Of Defence

London, 30 March 2022 – Elbit Systems UK has been selected by the Future Capability Group of the UK Ministry of Defence to deliver autonomous swarms of Vertical Take-Off and Landing Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) as part of the British Army’s Robotics and Autonomous Systems (RAS) project.

Elbit Systems UK will provide five autonomous swarms of six UAS each, operated using TORCH-X RAS, an operational open-architecture, platform-agnostic C4ISR solution that provides automated UAS mission management aided by Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, as well as full autonomy solutions for the platform level.

The autonomous swarms of UAS will be used for surveillance, with the capability to fly and continuously monitor, scan and discover for up to eight hours. The information obtained will be constantly relayed between the other UAS as well as back to the Ground Control Station (GCS), with any changes to an environment or landscape highlighted on the GCS. This will be delivered through the use of stills and video feeds, alongside integrated mapping capabilities to provide real-time, precise information.
