General Atomics Inks Modified MQ-9 Contract for Air Force
The U.S. Air Force awarded San Diego-based General Atomics Aeronautical Systems a $125.4 million contract to provide 10 MQ-9 modified Block 1 aircraft.
The Air Force expects delivery of the modified unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) by 2014.
General Atomics was also recently contracted to provide trailing arm/heavy weight landing gear (TA-MLG) retrofits for a fleet of Air Force MQ-9s.
