October 2, 2015 04:26

The Mexican government has purchased an advanced intelligence-gathering drone made by Israel defense company Aeronautics, the firm announced this week.

The Yavne-based company’s largest unmanned aerial system, the Dominator XP, is based on a DA-42 twin star commercial plane, and is designed to provide intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance flight missions.

It recently carried out a number of flights in Mexico.

Balam Security, a Mexican security marketing company, facilitated the sale.

“Providing comprehensive ISR [intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance] missions at long ranges, the Dominator XP is ideal for military as well as homeland security missions over land and sea,” an Aeronautics statement said.
