The Armenian-made unmanned aerial vehicles undergo tests and mass production will be launched after military trials are completed, said Hakob Arshakyan, Armenia’s Minister of High-Tech Industry in a press conference today, reports Public Radio of Armenia.
He added that the reconnaissance UAVs, which are not inferior to similar ones in terms of parameters, can already be produced in Armenia. Arshakyan added that those were widely used during the Artsakh War.
The Minister said military production is a priority for the government. According to him, the production of artillery and grenade launchers is expected to expand this year to fully cover the demand in Armenia.
As for the radar technologies used in the field of air defense, the Minister said: “We will uphold the financing in these directions – radar systems, communication systems, optical and video surveillance, optical laser systems.

The capacity will be expanded in the near future, greater opportunities will be created both in terms of our Armed Forces’ achievements and in terms of exports.”
