Designed for undetectable, underwater launch, and focusing on existing operational needs, the Ninox 103 Sub-to-Air is an autonomous AI-based system.

Intuitive and easy to operate, it provides the most effective way for submarines, Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs), and other underwater platforms to gain instant aerial capabilities, supporting various missions, including those of special forces, reconnaissance, and joint-force operations.

Capable of instantaneous launch, the system enables the vessel’s team to receive real-time imaging beyond the coastline, at long ranges, while remaining undetected and at a distance from land.

Ruggedized for harsh underwater and maritime environments, the Ninox 103 is payload agnostic, with an open architecture that enables third-party data link integration. Seamlessly integrated into existing submarine launching infrastructure, its low visual, thermal, and acoustic signatures support stealth-mode operation.

Founded in 2017, Spear is a Defense and HLS company that is disrupting the world of unmanned aerial systems with its broad range of solutions, which are used by the military, government, and civilian organizations around the globe. Spear is the single source supplier for several projects with the Israeli MOD.
