Aeronautics Has sold its largest unmanned air system (UAS), the Dominator XP, to Mexico for Medium Altitude Long Endurance (MALE) operations.
The Dominator XP is based on a DA-42 twin star commercial aircraft. The high reliability resulting significantly lower maintenance costs relative to other vehicles of its kind.
Providing comprehensive intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions at long ranges, the Dominator XP is ideal for military as well as homeland security missions, over land and sea.
Amos Mathan, Aeronautics’ CEO said, “The dominator is the highlight of Aeronautics development in the recent years. Taking a civil aircraft and transforming it into UAS allows the operators to enjoy all the benefits of a large UAS in an affordable price and with exceptional reliability.
“This is the first contract in which we export the UAS instead of renting it to the costumer, and I have no doubt that after the implementation of the system in Mexico we will soon market the dominator to other countries as well," he added.
