EDGE Group subsidiary HALCON has signed a deal worth AED 1.1 billion to deliver HUNTER 2-S (swarming), HUNTER 5 and HUNTER 10 loitering munitions to the U.A.E. Armed Forces.

HALCON’s HUNTER family of fixed-wing loitering munitions are designed for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) and aerial strike missions. The HUNTER 2-S is an autonomous unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that features advanced artificial intelligence (AI) to perform coordinated missions in a swarm. Furthermore, the HUNTER 2-S, 5 and 10 are transported in vehicle-mounted containers. The deal will mark a significant milestone for EDGE, as it includes the first U.A.E.-made defense solution to integrate advanced AI.
