The Eurosatory exhibition dedicated to the world of defense and security held in Paris is an opportunity for 1,500 exhibitors to showcase their products. Surveillance gyroplanes, flying buggies, military drones and helicopters.
With the rise of the military UAV market through the world, the need for drone operators will increase. To train them, Silkan, a French SME, has developed a high-tech flight simulator that adapts to all types of drones.
After two years’ competition, it is ultimately the Sagem tactical UAV Patroller, which will enter service with the French Army from 2018. Thales was vying with their Watchkeeper, and thus loses out on a contract of 300 million euros.
On the occasion of the 80th anniversary of Sagem’s Montluçon site located 300 km (180 miles) south of Paris and specialized in navigation, especially the manufacture of tactical U.A.V’s., we took a look at the latest product from the French manufacturer; the Patroller drone.
Inaugurated by the French Defence Minister, Jean-Yves Le Drian, earlier this week, today, June 20th, Eurosatory closes its doors. Over 1,500 exhibitors were present at this event dedicated to Land and Air-Land defense and security.
