Feb. 2009: Honeywell announced receiving a US Navy order for six T-Hawk Micro Air Vehicle systems, destined for the British MoD. In addition to the six T-Hawk MAV units, the MOD will receive training, field support, maintenance and spare parts.
The order is an addition to the Navy’s existing T-Hawk contract with Honeywell announced in November 2008 for 90 systems. The systems will be delivered to the Ministry of Defence in 2009.
