MSPO 2017: Azerbaijani export license a ‘matter of technicality’

6th September 2017 - 13:00 GMT | by Richard Thomas in Kielce


The Orbiter 1K loitering munition, manufactured by Israel-based Aeronautics, was on display at the MSPO exhibition and conference just days after an export license to Azerbaijan for the platform had been suspended.

Azerbaijan was reported to be keen to procure the UAS, with claims recently stating that it had been used in a targeted strike against Armenian forces during live demonstrations.

Officials at the show in Kielce told Shephard that they had no comment to make, other than to say that checks were being undertaken by the Israeli Ministry of Defence, and that it is ‘just a matter of technicality’.
