Israeli manufacturer Aeronautics Defense Systems (ADS) has confirmed a report in the Spanish website Defensa.com that it has signed a contract to supply two air Dominator XP unmanned systems to the Armed Forces of Mexico.

 

Based on the Diamond DA42 twin-engined private aircraft, the Dominator XP has a flight range of 28h and a payload of 300 kg.

 

The modified aircraft can be flown at altitudes of up to 30,000 feet (9,150 m) and has a maximum speed of 190kt (351 km/h).

 

In mid-2011, after it obtained permission from the Israeli Ministry of Defense, ADS made the first export sale of the system, signing a contract to supply two Dominator XP UAVs to Turkey.

 

Mexico currently operates two Schweizer SA-2-37s donated by the United States and integrated into the Integrated Air Surveillance System (SIVA) of the Mexican Air Force, along with 3 Embraer 145, the Fairchild C-26A and Hermes 450 UAVs.
