Germany, France, Italy and Spain carried out a definition study for around two years to develop a European, armed reconnaissance drone of the MALE class (Medium Altitude Long Endurance), which provides a robust basis for the start of the European drone program
should lay. The first results are now available.

In this European project, Germany assumed the leading role on the official side from the outset and thus applied the lead nation principle for the first time, which can also be found in more recent European armaments projects. The OCCAR (Joint Organization for Armaments Cooperation) was entrusted with the multinational management of the project.

The "Eurodrohne" project consists not only of the multinational "European MALE RPAS" (Medium Altitude Long Endurance Remotely Piloted Aircraft System) project, but also national components that are intended to meet the broad demands of the German armed forces.
