Historic Agreement in the European Defence Aeronautics Industry


Mrs. Michele Alliot-Marie, the French Minister of Defence, spoke at the opening of the Eurosatory air show and expressed her pleasure with the major agreement signed between EADS, the European company which is the world leader in civil and military aeronautics, Dassault Aviation, the world's largest supplier in business and military aviation, and Thales, European leader in defense electronics.

This founding agreement, in the framework of the demonstrators launched by the Ministry of Defence, covers all future activity in combat and strategic reconnaissance aeronautics.

  • In combat aviation:

Dassault Aviation was made prime contractor for the demonstrator of the unmanned combat air vehicles (UCAV), as announced at the last Le Bourget air show. EADS will be a partner in the research and development of this technological demonstrator, to which SAAB (Sweden) and HAI (Greece) are already associated.

  • In reconnaissance aviation:

EADS has been chosen as prime contractor for the Euromale demonstrator project, and will be a partner with Thales which will handle jointly with EADS the development of the ground segment and related systems.


The development of the flight segment and its system architecture is entrusted to Dassault Aviation and the manufacturing will be handled by teams from Dassault Aviation, EADS and Thales.


Close contacts have been made with other European industrial firms, including SAAB (Sweden) in particular.


Thus, all these cooperation agreements, which cover the essential reconnaissance and combat aviation segments, will make it possible to develop a powerful European industrial network in sensitive and strategic areas of the military aeronautics of the future.


N.B. : Dassault Aviation has announced that its UCAV will henceforth be called Neuron.
