The Netherlands Ministry of Defence has awarded AeroVironment a US$7.7m contract for RQ-11B (Raven) small unmanned aircraft systems.

The order includes new aircraft systems as well as training, logistics support and airworthiness certification, AeroVironment says.

Each Raven system typically consists of three aircraft, a ground control station, a remote video terminal, system spares and related services.

The 4.2lb Raven is a backpackable, hand-launched sensor platform that provides day and night, real-time video imagery for “over the hill” and “around the corner” reconnaissance, surveillance and target acquisition in support of tactical units.
