Successful landing: The German HERON TP (GHTP) arrives in Germany – April 2024

The transport of the GHTP from Ben Gurion (Israel) to Jagel at the beginning of April was a success. This marks an important milestone in the GHTP programme: The launch of the German Heron TP system in Germany.


German Heron TP (GHTP) contract amendment signed – November 2023

The German Federal Office of Bundeswehr Equipment, Information Technology and In-Service Support (BAAINBw) has signed a contract amendment with Airbus DS Airborne Solutions GmbH, a 100% Airbus subsidiary, to demonstrate operations with the German Heron TP drone in Germany.

With its signature, the BAAINBw has now cleared the way for a six-month flight operation of the GHTP project in Germany, with which the system can be operated in European airspace, starting with flights in German airspace. The contractor Airbus DS Airborne Solutions GmbH (ADAS) is providing the aircraft and support services to the German Armed Forces.

The flight operation with the GHTP for the purposes of national and alliance defence will take place at the Jagel site near Schleswig, where the Tactical Air Force Wing 51 “Immelmann” is also stationed. The Israeli drone system has been type-certified for operation in Germany since the end of last year.

The GHTP is a market-available system with modifications for the operational needs of the Bundeswehr and will take over the capability for reconnaissance, surveillance and support of forces on the ground until the introduction of the Eurodrone.
