Aeronautics, thanks to a product line of UAV platforms, associated Controp electro-optic payloads, Commtact data links and Zanzottera engines, is eyeing India as a market with enormous potential. Dany Eshchar, deputy CEO for marketing, sales and business development, said that the company is in dialogue with India’s big players in both the private and defense sectors to explore cooperative ventures. Aeronautics also makes the Dominator XP that is based on a twin-engine DA-42 airframe; this MALE platform can carry a 373kg payload. Mexico is a confirmed customer but there are others.
