EADS to Supply French Army With Deployable Geographic Modules

April 23, 2010
By Henry Kenyon

EADS Defence and Security and Thales have received a contract worth 26.1 million euros from the French defence procurement agency to produce and support two sets of deployable geographic modules (MGPs) for the French army's 28th Geographic Group. The program will develop a deployable system that can rapidly  produce, maintain and distribute military geography information. The MGP modules will supply geographic data updated in the field to operational land forces via a single cartographic access point.
