Mexico Buys Orbiter Mini UAV in Multimillion-Dollar Deal

February 17, 2009, Newtown, Conn. -- The Mexican government has just signed a $22 million deal with Israeli company Aeronautics Defense Systems, Ltd.

The contract will supply the Orbiter Mini UAV spy aircraft and surveillance blimp to the Mexican Federal Police.

The small unmanned aircraft developed by Aeronautics Defense Systems, known as the Orbiter, has been used by the Israeli government for surveillance work in the Gaza Strip.

The Skystar 300 blimp will also be delivered under the contract. The Skystar 300 is capable of 24-hour monitoring with onboard cameras.

The new equipment will no doubt assist the Federal Police in fighting drug trafficking and drug-related violence in the region. (defpro)
