Confirmation of the two teams in running for $5B unmanned armed drone contract. Includes IAI

“After some delays along the way, the revitalized RPAS procurement process has resulted in two teams being qualified to bid on the project. One of these teams is ‘Team Artemis’, a partnership between MAS, a subsidiary of L3Harris Technologies, and Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI). Team Artemis is proposing the Artemis UAV for RPAS, which is a Canadianized version of IAI’s Heron TP drone. The other bidder is Team SkyGuardian, which is comprised of General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, Inc. (GA-ASI), CAE, and MDA.”
