General Atomics to supply two more Reapers

23rd June 2020 - 15:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


General Atomics Aeronautical Systems has received a $26.87 million contract from US Naval Air Systems Command to provide two MQ-9A Reaper unmanned air systems (UASs).

The deal, announced on 22 June by the DoD, also includes one dual-control mobile ground control station; one modular data centre; and one mobile ground control station for Group 5 UAS ISR services/persistent strike efforts.

Work will be performed in Yuma, Arizona (40%) and elsewhere in the US, to be completed by December this year.

The FY2021 defence budget will see the last US procurement of the MQ-9A and the production line is expected to begin shutting down in 2021 once the final 48 aircraft have been produced.
