Paris Air Show: EADS unveils Talarion advanced UAV
As reported last week, EADS Defence & Security (DS) presents the mock-up of the Advanced UAV at Le Bourget. On the occasion of the debut, DS announced the brand name "Talarion".
The „Talarion“ name is derived from the winged sandals of Hermes in the Greek mythology, enabling him to fly over great distances and faster than anyone. EADS is offering this large MALE system to France, Germany and Spain. The modular UAV is based upon the results of a comprehensive risk reduction study, which was concluded in May this year. Should the Governments opt for the proposal, a maiden flight could occur within four years and first delivieries within six years.
