The companies recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to develop exportable, multi-mission Calidus B-250 and other future platforms with mission solutions. Additionally, the companies aim to pursue MRO and mission system integration opportunities on other fixed wing, rotary wing and UAS systems.

Calidus selected L3Harris in 2021 as a key partner for supplying multiple B-250 mission system kits uniquely suited for the UAE’s B-250 mission, featuring L3Harris’ mission management software solution; electro-optical/infrared imaging system; digital video data link; advanced multichannel airborne networking radio and other aircraft avionics products. L3Harris recently delivered the first of 12 kits to Calidus for integration into the aircraft.

“L3Harris is a key partner in our B-250 project and this MOU is a welcome step forward in growing the partnership in other related avenues. The collaboration would positively contribute towards providing wider spectrum of solutions for the regional market, while ensuring capability development for Calidus Aerospace as the leading UAE National Aviation Technology company,” said Mr. Khalifa Murad AlBlooshi, Calidus Aerospace CEO.  

“L3Harris is committed to Calidus for the successful completion of the B-250 program and the vital capability this provides to the UAE Air Force,” said David Cotham, General Manager, ForceX, L3Harris. “This partnership positions us to launch international business with Calidus in the UAE and MENA region and further expand our airborne ISR portfolio.”
