It is breaking the barriers in showing what is possible by employing existing technology. And to show people, to demonstrate visually, that we can use lightweight precision weapons from this latest generation of, let’s call it a tactical platform, where we can have, perhaps, two rounds and we can exploit all the benefits of LMM as precise. It has a good range, you know, it’s like two to 6km, and can be used against a variety of high-value threats.

you want to win you have to be a step ahead and everybody else is racing ahead and we need to be able to either catch up or overtake. Jackal is the start of that process. Up until now, drones have been used in a very light tactical way or as a big standoff surveillance platform and reconnaissance platform, sometimes with missiles on them to do small interventions on roads in Afghanistan and things like that.


Our JACKAL aircraft is causing quite a stir at DSEI, the Defence Trade Show taking place at the ExCeL London. Delegates and Exhibitors from the World's defence sectors are descending on London for the show. Front and centre is JACKAL!

JACKAL Has Got the World Covered!

There are three defence trade shows going on in the same week and JACKAL is at all of them. DSEI in London, ISAF in Istanbul (Our second home) and TADTE in TAIPEI. We are so proud to have a presence at all of these enormously important shows.
