DARPA Official: Satellite Servicing Presents Chance To Leverage Industry Development

17 May 2017
Inside Defense reports that the Pentagon announced Tuesday evening that the US Air Force has awarded General Atomics a $400 million contract to deliver 36 new MQ-9 Reaper UAVs in Block 5 configuration. The contract is funded with fiscal year 2016 money, and deliveries are scheduled for completion by August 2020. The Air Force announced in February that it will gradually replace its squadrons of General Atomics' MQ-1 Predators with additional MQ-9s, and the service is retrofitting its Block 1 MQ-9s with Block 5 avionics.
