The Spanish Ministry of Defence (MoD) has opened a bidding contest to supply unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to help protect troops posted on overseas training missions.

Some EUR4.3 million (USD4.9 million) has been budgeted for the class 1 small remote aircraft (20 kg), which are expected to be delivered before the end of 2018.

The MoD says the armed forces are finding themselves involved in training missions abroad where protection and security levels at the bases they work at are sometimes “minimal”.

Each of the two systems being procured will have three UAVs and payloads, and two ground stations, along with launching and recovery systems.
