Greece will manufacture a new, innovative surveillance drone. Named IDEX 2021 LOTUS, which represents the next generations of unmanned surveillance aircraft, the aerial vehicle will be manufactured by a Greek firm.
The Greek firm, Intracom Defence, signed an agreement with the European Commission for the tactical Unmanned Aerial Vehicle or UAV, which has been a speciality designed for border surveillance and reconnaissance and what the Greek company calls “high value targets”.
A grant agreement for 9.7 million euros, which was approved, last July, will secure the funding for the production of the drone.
The grant was part of the European Defence Industrial Development Program.
