Pro­cure­ment of first Preda­tor XP sys­tem


Gen­eral Atomics Aero­nau­ti­cal Sys­tems, Inc. (GA-ASI), a lead­ing man­u­fac­turer of re­motely-pi­loted air­craft (RPA), tac­ti­cal re­con­nais­sance radars, and elec­troop­tic sur­veil­lance sys­tems, has an­nounced the pro­cure­ment of its first Preda­tor XP RPA sys­tem by the United Arab Emi­rates (UAE).

Preda­tor XP is an up­dated ver­sion of the com­pany’s flag­ship Preda­tor RPA that has been li­censed by the US Government for sale to a broader cus­tomer base, in­clud­ing coun­tries in the Mid­dle East and North Africa.

“Two years ago we made a com­mit­ment to help the UAE strengthen its na­tional se­cu­rity and pro­tect crit­i­cal in­fra­struc­ture, and to­day we are pleased to share the news that this al­lied na­tion will soon be re­al­is­ing the ben­e­fits of Preda­tor XP’s long-en­durance and wide-area sur­veil­lance ca­pa­bil­i­ties,” said J. Neal Blue, Chair­man and CEO, GA-ASI.
