France's DGA tests nEUROn in operational contexts
The French DGA has completed a new flight test campaign of the nEUROn stealth combat drone technology demonstrator.
Carried out in cooperation with Dassault Aviation, the flight trials enabled the study the use of a stealth combat drone in an operational context, including defence tactics against such an aircraft.
Supported by the Military Air Expertise Center and the Air Force Airborne Control Detection Squadron, the nEUROn demonstrator flew in multiple tactical configurations with five Rafale and an AWACS aircraft.
The results of the trial are currently being analysed in depth by several DGA centers of expertise in order to inform architecture and technology decisions for the Future Air Combat System.
