The Royal Thai airforce has been evaluating some types of UAS in recent months . One of them is the G- Star based on the Innocon’s MiniFalcon -2 . Innocon is an Israeli UAS manufacturer.

The G-Start has a twin boom fuselage and has an enhanced takeoff weight compared with the MiniFalcon-2 . ( 220 KG MAXTOW compared to 200 kg)

The Royal Thai airforce purchased the G-Star system and evaluates it against other UAS . One is the Aeronautics Aerostar.

The G-Star is the first result of the cooperation agreement between the two companies signed earlier this year.

G-Force has so far specialized in manufacturing composite structures and supplied some for UAS developed by Innocon.

According to the agreement, G-Force is the Israeli company’s regional representative. Potential clients for the G-Star and other UAS made by Innocon , are expected in Thailand during the security defence exhibition.
