Under this agreement Sagem will be responsible for the technical domains of
line of sight datalink, optronic payloads and interoperability functions
between the Euromale UAV systems and the French SDTI system and the Sperwer
system used by the land forces of five other countries. Concerning the
datalink and the interoperability functions, Sagem and EADS will cooperate in
order to maximize the use of their existing investments and equipments of both
companies. Beyond Euromale, Sagem and EADS intend to promote their datalink on
the whole UAV market.
The agreement draws upon both EADS’ recognized experience and expertise in the
development of aerial vehicles and Sagem’s world-class optronic payloads and
transmission systems. Together, EADS and Sagem will be able to expand the
scope of missions carried out by the existing Euromale UAV systems.
