RQ-5 Hunter Back in August 2005, DID covered a $214 million contract for System Development and Demonstration for the Extended Range / Multi-Purpose Unmanned Aerial Vehicle – aka. the Warrior UAV, which leveraged technologies from the Predator UAV family to defeat Northrop-Grumman/IAI’s Hunter II in the finals. DID’s previous article offers in-depth coverage of the ER/MPUAV program, which will eventually replace the US Army’s RQ-5 Hunter UAVs. General Atomics Aeronautical Systems in San Diego, CA just received a $67 million increment as part of that contract. Work will be performed in San Diego, CA (43%), Adelanto, CA (14%), Palmdale, CA (8%), Salt Lake City, UT (18%), Hunt Valley, MD (14%), and Huntsville, AL (3%), and is expected to be complete by Aug. 31, 2009. There were 120 bids solicited on Sept. 1, 2004, and three bids were received. The U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command at Redstone Arsenal, AL issued the contract (W58RGZ-05-C-0069).
