Reuters: the United States intends to increase the export of drones

7
US President Donald Trump will soon greatly facilitate the export of certain types of American drone drone drums, which will receive dozens of allies and partners of Washington.


It is expected that simplified rules for exporting military UAVs abroad will be adopted already this month. This is only the first stage of a broader revision of the rules for exporting weapons, Reuters reported, citing sources familiar with the plan.

Reuters: the United States intends to increase the export of drones


Simplification of the rules was actively lobbied by American manufacturers of unmanned aerial vehicles, which faced growing competition in the form of China and Israel. As expected, this step will be promoted by the US administration in the framework of the Trump Buy American initiative.

To date, only the United Kingdom and Italy can really qualify for the purchase of American drone drone. The Trump administration wants to compile a list of countries from among the closest allies of the United States in NATO for which there will be a simplified procedure for acquiring such vehicles.

      The Boeing Insitu ScanEagle UAV was put into service, one complex cost about 3 million US dollars. The complex consists of four unmanned aerial vehicles with cameras and thermal imagers installed on them, a single control station, a video signal handling system, a pneumatic catapult, and SkyHook system hardware. Elements of the complex can be installed and transported by car, armored vehicles, ships or boats. Depending on the specific basic technology, some UAV complex facilities undergo small changes. For example, the land version of the catapult and the SkyHook system is equipped with a wheeled chassis, and on boats or ships all elements of the complex are installed permanently.
      Currently, they are used in the armies of Australia, Great Britain, Canada, Colombia, the Netherlands and other countries.

        ScanEagle is a reconnaissance drone and there is no great secret in them for us, because the Iranians intercepted it and even adjusted copying, and even presented one of their birds to our Air Force commander Bondarev (photo))).
        The article also deals with the opening of exports for NATO drone drones (perhaps the most advanced Gray Eagle), although most likely it will be Reaper primarily for Poland.

          ... we are talking about opening export for NATO drone drones

          hi ... Yes, I’m on a photo ... And on drums, EuroNATs will howl and scatter (I hope), looking at Chinese prices
          More than twenty customers from more than ten countries have already purchased CAAA products for hundreds of millions of US dollars. No specific sales figures are provided. It is known that since 2003, the Chinese UAVs SN-1, СН-2, СН-3, and СН-4 have been adopted by Pakistan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Nigeria, the UAE, and Iraq. In 2015, UAA production in CAAA increased to new record levels. According to the media resource Space News, it was planned to release about 200 UAVs for China and foreign customers.

    As I understand it, if all this is translated into a normal language, then the purchase for the allies will be voluntary-compulsory ..................
