Thailand has signed a contact to buy Hermes 900 unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) made by Israeli defense electronics company Elbit Systems for 4 billion baht ($107.67 million), the Thai navy said on Wednesday.
The Thai navy said the drones would be used to patrol the sea to protect the country's maritime sovereignty, shipping routes and assist in sea rescue operations.
The drone system is used in many countries including the Philippines, Switzerland, the European Union and Canada.
