Taiwan, France Sign Spy Drone Partnership Deal

Taiwan’s GEOSAT Aerospace and Technology signed a cooperation agreement with France’s Cavok UAS on developing an advanced surveillance drone in France on April 23.

GEOSAT Aerospace and Technology Chairman and Asian Innovation Center Association Chairman Lo Cheng-fang confirmed the signing of such an agreement in a Facebook post on Monday.

The two firms will jointly develop long-endurance UAVs with vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) capabilities.

Lo noted that this is the first joint development project between Taiwan and France. “(It will also) enable Taiwan's drone supply chain to connect to the international market faster,” said Lo.

Code-named "CK50-T," the new drone will be used to strengthen land and sea intelligence search, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities. In terms of technical highlights, it is mainly a common platform with long endurance and automatic VTOL capabilities.
