The French defense procurement agency has selected multinational aerospace firms Thales and CS Group to develop a drone countermeasures system called the Protection Déployable Modulaire Anti-Drone (PARADE).

With a total program budget of 350 million euros ($368 million), the French military will receive six PARADE systems over 11 years.

According to Thales, counter-drone systems are crucial since “millions of new drones” are projected to enter the skies over the next two decades, creating an “extremely complex” aviation ecosystem and heightened security challenges.
