The much anticipated Greek super drone ARCHYTAS is reportedly scheduled for completion this July according to media reports.

According to the media outlet, work on the drone is on schedule with work set to be completed by the beginning of July.

The design of this VTOL UAV is a joint collaboration between the Hellenic Aerospace Industry (EAB) with the Aristotle University, the Democritus University of Thrace, and the University of Thessaly.

The drone is expected to substantially upgrade Greece’s defence as a whole, while it will also join civil protection services.

The drone will be used for surveillance of the country’s land and sea borders and can be used for commercial purposes.

It will have the ability to take off and land vertically and will have advanced systems that have reportedly not been available in the current similar drones like using vertical take-off and landing technology similar to the 5th generation F35 fighters.

The program is fully funded by the Ministry of Finance.

In April this year, the Minister of Finance, Christos Staikouras, underlined that “the effort is ongoing and expanding, so that our country enters the international arena as a certified designer and producer of high and innovative technology products.”

For his part, Development Minister Adonis Georgiadis has pointed out: “EAB can play a leading role in the critical field of high technology, something that seems to be the future of the way the countries defend themselves.”
