Elistair, a France-based manufacturer of tethered unmanned aircraft systems (UASs), announced the launch of the Orion 2.2 TE UAS at DSEI 2023, held from 12 to 15 September in London.

The Orion 2.2 TE is designed for intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) and telecommunication applications in both the defence and civil domains. The UAS can also be deployed in border control, forward operating base (FOB) surveillance, and maintenance of critical communications.

The Orion 2.2 TE is an upgrade of its predecessor, the Orion 2 UAS. The Orion 2.2 TE includes new tactical functions, an expanded payload range, including a payload development kit, and a modular structure to broaden its range of capabilities. In case of an emergency, an integrated parachute can be deployed, automatically or manually, for the safe recovery of the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). The UAV is characterised as being operable within a temperature range of -10°C to 45°C (14°F to 113°F).
