The manufacturer of the Predator and Reaper Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) was present at DefExpo 2014 for the first time. General Atomics’ Scott Forney spoke to StratPost about their interest in India and what discussions they’ve had with the defense ministry.
But it has nothing to with UAVs. General Atomics is trying to interest the Indian Navy in their Electromagnetic Aircraft Launch Systems (EMALS) for India’s indigenous aircraft carriers.
This system is still under development for the US Navy’s Gerald Ford-class aircraft carriers.
