Australia's Defence Science and Technology Group (DSTG) has decided to collaborate with local company Grollo Aerospace to support further development of the Evader autonomous supersonic aerial target system.
The collaboration would provide the Australian Defence Force (ADF) with a cost-effective means to test the performance of modern weapon systems targeted at ADF aircraft, Defence Industry Minister Christopher Pyne announced on 10 March.
