The German Ministry of Defence awarded EADS Defence & Security the prime contractor role for the Agile UAV within Network-Centric Environments (Agile UAV-NCE) technology program. This program is aimed at the analysis and refinement of enabling technologies and operational concepts of unmanned agile reconnaissance operations of a UAV. DS is a partner in a tri-national advanced UAV study in France, Germany, and Spain, and its prime objectives are system-of-systems approaches and the network-centric operations context for its UAV portfolio. The Finnish Defence Forces will also contribute to the program via its Finnish Unmanned Vehicle Systems project and its UAV Data Link technology programs. The Agile UAV-NCE program is planned to be executed in subsequent phases and to run until 2013, covering both computer simulations and actual test flights. DS is responsible for the complete system design and will contribute to the program with the technology demonstrator Barracuda.
