General Atomics Aeronautical Systems (GA-ASI) has expanded its Team Reaper Australia solution bid for Australia's Project AIR 7003 to nine industry partners, the company announced on 6 September. 

The Royal Australian Air Force’s Project AIR 7003 will provide an armed, medium-altitude, long-endurance UAS that will be fully-interoperable with Australia's allies. 

Launched at the Avalon Airshow in February 2017, Team Reaper Australia has now expanded to nine companies to include Cobham Australia, CAE Australia, Raytheon Australia, Flight Data Systems, TAE Aerospace, Rockwell Collins, Ultra Electronics Australia, Airspeed and Quickstep Holdings. The companies will provide a range of innovative sensor, communication, manufacturing and life-cycle support capabilities for the bid.

Linden Blue, CEO of GA-ASI, said: ‘General Atomics recognises the importance of having a robust team of Australian industry partners to support the AIR 7003 requirements. We are strongly committed to partnerships with Australian industry and to providing a capable, affordable RPA system to the Australian Defence Force.’
