NATO receives last Phoenix AGS UAV

The Supreme Headquarters of Allied Forces Europe (SHAPE) said it had received the fifth Northrop Grumman RQ-4D Phoenix unmanned aerial vehicle, which will form NATO’s Alliance Ground Surveillance capability.

The delivery of the NATO aircraft from Palmdale in California to Sigonella, the main base of operations on the island of Sicily, was announced on 12 November. As part of the AGS program, NATO member countries will try to provide a real-time, weather-appropriate, large-area terrestrial and maritime surveillance system as part of protection and tasks.
