Boeing has signed an MoU with Aeronautics Defense Systems to jointly market the DA42 Dominator UAS, an unmanned ISR version of the Diamond DA42 light twin.

“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 of 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 expected to have an endurance of up to 10 hours and will be able to carry EO/IR and radar based sensors.
