LONDON, June 8 (UPI) -- Britain's BAE Systems and France's Dassault Aviation are developing a joint aerial reconnaissance program.

The BAE Systems and Dassault Aviation system, named Telemos, developed under a memorandum of understanding is intended to develop a next-generation medium-altitude, long-endurance unmanned aerial system, BAE Systems said Wednesday.

BAE Systems and Dassault Aviation are to unveil the MALE UAS system this month at the Paris Air Show.

BAE Systems Military Air and Information Strategy and Technology Director Peter Richardson said: "Since the signing of the MOU earlier this year we have continued to work together to ensure that, as soon as the two governments formally launch their requirement, we are well placed to develop the future frontline capability they require.

"We have already set up a joint team and will look to strengthen this with other leading industry players to ensure that the Telemos program will develop a cost-effective, autonomous system in the required timescales."
