PARIS — Gabon on Tuesday signed for a batch of orders that included a positioning system, unmanned ground vehicles (UGV) and mobile medical shelters, according to the French company Nexter.
The contracts were signed at the Eurosatory trade show, the land weapons business said in a statement. No financial details were given.
Among the contracts were the Findsat positioning system, Nerva LG UGVs reconnaissance mini-robots with a variety of mission kits, NX-100 UAVs from drone specialist Novadem and medical shelters from Euro-Shelter, a Nexter subsidiary, the company said.
The orders follow Congo's 2014 purchase of 12 Aravis armored vehicles armed with a remote-controlled 20mm gun, PG Guard protection system for vehicles and Nerva LG ground drones, the company said. That equipment is now deployed in the UN peacekeeping mission in Central African Republic.
