Boeing has signed a memorandum of understanding with Aeronautics Ltd. for the DA42 Dominator unmanned aircraft system.

Boeing has signed a memorandum of understanding with Aeronautics Ltd. to market the DA42 Dominator unmanned aircraft system. "The medium-altitude, long-endurance (MALE) portion of the unmanned systems market is rapidly expanding as the world's armed forces acquire a variety of vehicles for use in current conflicts and future missions," said Chris Chadwick, President, Boeing Military Aircraft. "By collaborating with Aeronautics to market the DA42 Dominator, Boeing is able to offer a wider range of MALE solutions to current and potential customers, both domestically and internationally." The DA42 Dominator is designed for intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance missions with an all-composite construction that provides durability, reduced maintenance, and lower aircraft weight to enhance mission endurance.
