Eurodrone MALE RPAS

Recommended Posts

La negoziazione tra le industrie (Dassault Leonardo e Airbus) e la DGA francese è tesa. La Francia non vuole spendere più di 7,1 miliardi di euro su questo progetto.

Il drone dovrebbe costare 200 milioni ad unità, cioè il doppio di un Reaper. Per 21 sistemi di terra e 63 droni la DGA non vuole spendere più di 7,1 miliardi di euro, sviluppo compreso, mentre gli industriali hanno preventivato 10 miliardi.

La DGA ribadisce che è assurdo comperare un drone meno performante ad un prezzo doppio di prodotti già esistenti sul mercato. La logica non fa una grinza.

La negoziazione terminerà a metà dicembre.

Dopo un paio d'anni di alti e bassi ... si tenta di far ripartire il programma europeo ...



The defense ministers of Germany and France have pushed for speedy progress in the Eurodrone program, urging member nations to initiate the aircraft’s development phase before the end of the year.
The high-level endorsement means a shot in the arm for a weapons program that has slipped under the radar since Airbus, Dassault and Leonardo unveiled a mock-up drone at the April 2018 Berlin Air Show.
While French Armed Forces Minister Florence Parly said she hopes to see the next phase begin by year’s end, her German counterpart, Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, expressed hope any outstanding issues, which mostly involve cost, could be resolved “in the next few weeks.”
The two leaders spoke at Manching, Germany, Airbus' hub for the Eurodrone project and a company site for another key European program, the Future Combat Air System.
The unmanned aircraft’s official name is “European MALE RPAS,” using acronyms for medium-altitude, long-endurance, remotely piloted aircraft system. The pan-European Organisation for Joint Armament Cooperation manages it on behalf of Germany, France, Italy and Spain.
