NAVAIR selects General Atomics for continued MQ-9 work

26th August 2020 - 12:48 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


General Atomics Aeronautical Systems has received a $15.5 million contract modification from US Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR), for site relocation activities and continued ISR services using contractor-owned/contractor-operated MQ-9 Reaper UAS.

Work will take place in Arizona, California and other locations outside the continental US, for completion by December 2020.

The US and eight allied countries operate the MQ-9 (or the MQ-9B variant). Shephard Defence Insight notes that the FY2021 US defence budget will see the final DoD procurement of the MQ-9 and the production line is expected to begin shutting down in 2021 once the last 48 aircraft have been produced.
