AR3 Net Ray


Tekever’s AR3 Net Ray is an unmanned aerial vehicle that boasts 10 hours of endurance which makes it deal for maritime operations over vast oceans, including monitoring and tracking illegal fishing activities.

Go your own way: The AR3 Net Ray is truly designed with versatility in mind. Designed to be equally effective for defense missions as those combatting ocean pollution, the UAV is fully customizable with a range of payload options. The Portuguese Navy has used the AR3 Net Ray for assistance in search and rescue missions for migrants in the Mediterranean Sea.

All aboard: This highly portable UAV was designed and tested specifically for use on smaller vessels. It’s catapult launch and parachute launch eliminate the need for more extensive and costly launch and retrieval infrastructure that a smaller vessel could not hold.

First of its kind: The latest version of the AR3 Net Ray includes integrated maritime radar capability with a range of 25 nm, and was, according to Tekever, the first of its class of UAVs to offer this capacity.
