Milkor’s Naval Defence Solution Division forms a core part of Milkor’s vision and growth strategy. Situated in Abu Dhabi in the UAE, Milkor NDS consists of a full Marine Engineering and Naval Architecture team, with proven capability to research, design, prototype and manufacture innovative vessels for law enforcement, coast guard and naval forces.
Its first product, the Milkor IPC, leverages hydrofoil technology, and achieves cruising performance unmatched by any vessel in its class. The IPC has the ability to switch between manned and unmanned operation.
The Milkor IPC unmanned variant, has been designed from the ground up to maximise the advantages offered by a USV. Capacity for payloads, both in terms of mass and volume, allows integration of a wide range of payloads, including multiple types of missile systems.
Another product is the Milkor Commander, designed to be the best-in-class vessel for law enforcement, coast guards and maritime security. With a top speed of 45 knots, extreme range of 500 nautical miles at 35 knots, ample working area, extreme manoeuvrability, and space for up to 12 crew members, the Milkor Commander is even capable of handling in four metre swells.
In the dynamic realm of unmanned aerial systems (UAS), Milkor has firmly positioned itself as a prominent industry player. The company’s latest development, the Milkor 380, has emphasised the platform’s innovative design, focusing on safety systems, operational data, architecture, and structural enhancements.
The Milkor 380 is a NATO Class III RPAS designed to perform surveillance, reconnaissance, and target engagement operations. Its versatile design allows it to handle long-range missions effectively with an endurance of up to 35 hours. Equipped with advanced optical equipment, it can transmit HD, infrared and multispectral video and data. The 380 includes Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), Inverse Synthetic Aperture Radar (iSAR) with Ground and Maritime Movement Target Indicators (GMTI/MMTI), and multiple options for precision guided munitions. The integration of these subsystems onto the 380 will be fundamental for operations in the Asian region.
Milkor is also the world-leader in 40mm hand-held weapon systems, being the first company in the world to design and develop the Multiple-Grenade Launcher. As the pioneer of such products, Milkor is able to update and modernise its portfolio as needed without compromising quality and performance.
