Prospects for Leonardo UAV’s in Export Markets

: Feb 7, 2020 - : 2:00 pm

“We are seeing a great deal of interest from around the world. There are a number of countries which are looking to procure persistent, multi-sensor assets or services for strategic surveillance and we are confident that the Falco Xplorer can be tailored to meet many of these individual requirements. Important to note is that the Falco Xplorer is not subject to International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) restrictions and meets the criteria for Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR) class II, meaning that the system is readily exportable,” said Q Fabrizio Boggiani, SVP Airborne Systems – Electronics Italy at Leonardo.

He further added, “We have had a number of international customers already for our Falco and Falco Evo models of UAS, all of whom have been very satisfied with the system, so we are talking to these customers about potentially upgrading to the new system. In fact, it is our regular engagement with current Falco family customers which prompted the development of the Xplorer: some customers noted a requirement for the mission benefits brought by a higher capacity for payloads and longer endurance.”
