nEUROn UCAV history video release.


nEUROn UCAV history video release.

Created with the usual Dassault pomp! Interesting none the less. In the words of wiki

The nEUROn development, originally planned by Dassault as “AVE Grand Duc, evolved into a European cooperation including SwedishSaab AB, GreekEAB, SwissRUAG Aerospace, SpanishEADS CASAand ItalianAlenia. As a technology demonstrator”, only single vehicle will be produced to explore new operational concepts for a future generation of autonomous stealth fighter aircraft that will be produced beyond 2020. This is advocated by the statement that the industrial partners want to invest more in technology development, rather than manufacturing of the flying hardware, despite the risk of the loss of the single prototype.
