Description: Talarion is an advanced twin-jet unmanned air vehicle (UAV) system developed by EADS to meet the requirements of France, Germany and Spain for a fully autonomous Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition and Reconnaissance (ISTAR) airborne platform. The program was officially launched at the Paris Air Show on June 15, 2009. The UAV prototype is expected to take to the air for the first time in 2013 with first production series deliveries in 2015.

Each Talarion system consists of three UAVs fitted with a modular sensor/payload plus a ground control station. Military customers will get unlimited control of their missions and the data obtained therein. France and Germany will receive six systems each with 18 UAVs while Spain would order three systems with nine UAVs. The Talarion project was cancelled in early March 2012 due to the deep economic crisis in the European Union.
