Airbus: First SIRTAP flight planned for 2025

Airbus SE announced on Wednesday that it has signed an agreement with the Spanish Ministry of Defense for the development and purchase of SIRTAP, a High-Performance Tactical Unmanned Aerial System (UAS). The company said that the first flight of the SIRTAP prototype is planned for 2025.

As part of the contract, Spain will be provided with nine systems, consisting of three unmanned aerial vehicles and one ground control station, as well as two simulators to be used for the training of the Spanish military forces.

"SIRTAP will be fully developed in Spain, integrating national capabilities. However, thanks to its versatility and the use of ITAR-free components, we also expect it to play a key role in the international market," Executive Vice President Military Aircraft at Airbus Jean-Brice Dumont commented.
