NSPA supports the Greek Army with the upgrade of its tactical drone force

Story by NATO Support and Procurement Agency

The Greek Army has tasked the NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA) with the upgrade of their SPERWER tactical drone system through a contract with Safran Electronics & Defense.

The Patroller leverages over 30 years of technological breakthroughs within Safran Electronics & Defense in the field of tactical drone systems specialising in navigation systems, onboard electronics and optronics. Featuring a number of innovative technologies, the system upgrade includes multiple sensors for intelligence missions on behalf of armies and homeland security forces.

In February 2023, Patroller became the first tactical drone system to be officially certified to NATO airworthiness standard STANAG 4671, applicable to fixed-wing drones weighing more than 150 kilograms. This certification is a vital prerequisite for protection and homeland security missions.



Through this contract, NSPA will enable the Greek Army to perform a wider variety of surveillance missions, from support for land forces to maritime and border monitoring.

The upgrade confirms NSPA’s efficient, effective and responsive answer to NATO’s requirements and the Agency’s key role in linking these with industry.
