Euro defence firms call for more drones

16.06.2013, 17:08
Three top European defence firms have called on governments to launch a programme to manufacture drones that European countries are currently having to buy from Israel or the United States.
France's Dassault Aviation, European aerospace giant EADS and Italy's Finmeccanica argued such a joint programme would "support the capability needs of European armed forces while optimising the difficult budgetary situation through pooling of research and development funding".They said in a statement they were prepared to work together on the creation of a European MALE (medium-altitude, long-endurance) drone, which allows surveillance of vast areas over 24 hours.
