GA-ASI Shot Down in Court, Still Ready to Celebrate Its Successes

Germany will go ahead with plans to use Heron unmanned aircraft made by Israel Aerospace Industries, leasing those Heron drones from Airbus. General Atomics Aeronautical Systems Inc. wanted that business for itself and tried get it, going as far as a German court to get the government to reconsider GA-ASI’s proposal. But the company’s gamble didn’t pay off. The court ruled on May 31 that the German government could lease the Herons, Defense News reported.

In other news, GA-ASI said it completed critical design review of an improved ground control station for its remotely piloted aircraft. (Pilots on the ground control GA-ASI’s Predator aircraft and its variants.) The Poway business calls its new ground station its Block 50 model, which it designed following a set of new requirements from the U.S. Air Force.

GA-ASI said it plans to mark its 25th anniversary this year with employee and customer outreach.
