The Agency has set objectives in the field of military resource development, defense research and development, pan-European cooperation projects on armaments, strengthening the industrial and technological structure and as a key direction, the creation of a joint competitive market for military and dual-use products. Significant progress has also been made in the area of unmanned aerial vehicles (Remote Piloted Aircraft Systems, RPAS). The aim of the project is to introduce unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) into the internal airspace. The Agency coordinates the interaction of the UAV national operators, the European Commission represented by the Directorate-General for Mobility and Transport and the European UAV Leading Group.
