Brazil Increases Drone Power as Spain Transfers UAV Tech to the South American Giant

Spain's National Institute of Aerospace Technology agreed to transfer drone technology to Brazil on Thursday, giving Brazil the opportunity to market the drones to South American countries interested in using the unmanned systems.

Brazil is quickly becoming one of the most important countries in Latin America when it comes to unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), more commonly called drones. With the agreement with Spain's aerospace agency for the transfer of technology to produce Diana-type UAVs, which are a kind of target drone, Brazil has the rights to yet another drone in its arsenal -- both military and manufacturing.

The agreement with Spain will allow Brazil to market the UAVs in South America to countries interested in using them in their defense programs, through an exclusive license for the production and commercial capitalization of the Diana drone technology, according to a report from Prensa Latina. The deal includes two fully functional drones with remote ground control apparatuses along with the license.
