Boeing Signs MOU to Market Dominator UAS
Boeing on Tuesday at the Farnborough Airshow said it signed a memorandum of understanding with Aeronautics Ltd., of Yavne, Israel, to market the DA42 Dominator unmanned aircraft system.
The DA42 Dominator is designed for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions with an all-composite construction, according to Boeing.
"The Medium Altitude Long Endurance (MALE) portion of the unmanned systems market is rapidly expanding as the world's armed forces acquire a variety of vehicles for use in current conflicts and future missions," said Chris Chadwick, president of Boeing Military Aircraft. "By collaborating with Aeronautics to market the DA42 Dominator, Boeing is able to offer a wider range of MALE solutions to current and potential customers, both domestically and internationally."
"We believe that Boeing's vast experience and knowledge, together with Aeronautics' innovative technology and unmanned expertise, will position the DA42 Dominator as one of the leading MALE unmanned aircraft systems available on the market," said Aeronautics CEO Avi Leumi.
