The European MALE RPAS Programme Division (MRPD) has completed a contract with Germany’s DFS Aviation Services (DAS) on a preliminary safety assessment, the Organisation for Joint Armament Co-operation announced on 13 May.

The objective of the safety assessment was focused on the integration of the European MALE RPAS in segregated and non-segregated airspace.

Overall, five workshops took place with participation of MRPD and national experts, complemented by experts from the European Defence Agency as well as Airbus Defence and Space, Dassault Aviation and Leonardo.

The final documentation was delivered at the end of April 2019. The results will be included in the preparation of the upcoming European MALE RPAS Stage 2 contract.

DAS is the German air navigation service provider.
