Invitation: Seminar on the future of Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems – Can Europe become a global leader?

Defence and security company Saab invites media to a seminar on the future of European Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems - Can Europe become a global leader? What political decisions are necessary and what will Europe have to do to catch up?  Can we deal with future security challenges in a better way with remotely piloted systems? Welcome on the 13th of November 2014 at 18.00 at the Renaissance Brussels Hotel. Interviews with Lennart Sindahl, Saab Deputy CEO, can be arranged in connection to the seminar.

Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) constitute a pertinent future capability in order to keep European independence. They offer important opportunities for Europe to increase security and strategic autonomy.
