Dominator Maiden Flight for Aeronautics in Mexico


Aeronautics’ Dominator XP successfully completed maiden flights in Mexico September 29th 2015. Yavne, Israel –

Aeronautics’ largest UAS, the Dominator XP, successfully completed a series of maiden flights in Mexico.

The system was sold to the Mexican government via Balam security, a Mexican marketing company. The company did not reveal the price for the deal, but defense market sources told Israeli media the sum estimated at $20-30 million.

The Dominator XP is a Medium Altitude Long Endurance UAS (MALE UAS), Based on a DA-42 twin star commercial aircraft.

The Dominator XP offers high MTBF (mean time between failures) similar to the manned aircraft, and lower maintenance costs relative to other vehicles of its kind.

Providing comprehensive ISR missions at long ranges, the Dominator XP is ideal for military as well as homeland security missions, over land and sea.

Amos Mathan, Aeronautics’ CEO: “The dominator is the highlight of Aeronautics development in the recent years. Taking a civil aircraft and transforming it into UAS allows the operators to enjoy all the benefits of a large UAS in an affordable price and with exceptional reliability. This is the first contract in which we export the UAS instead of renting it to the costumer, and I have no doubt that after the implementation of the system in Mexico we will soon market the dominator to other countries as well. ”

Aeronautics LTD, an Israel-based defense solution provider, is a developer and manufacturer of Unmanned Aerial Systems focusing on the Mini, Tactical, and MALE UAS categories.

Since its establishment in 1997, the Company’s products have been delivered and successfully serve over 50 defense, military and homeland security customers on five continents.

Aeronautics has the following subsidiary holdings: Commtact (100%), Zanzottera (100%), Controp (50%) and RT (51%). Aeronautics CEO is colonel (ret.) Amos Mathan. A
