EDA Chief Executive visits OCCAR Director
The Chief Executive of the European Defence Agency (EDA), Mr. Jorge Domecq, visited OCCAR Director Tim Rowntree at the OCCAR headquarters in Bonn on 8 December for their biannual meeting. Both, supported by their teams, reviewed the common achievements and discussed the further development of their cooperation. EDA and OCCAR cooperate in a number of areas including the MMF (Multinational MRTT Fleet) and the MALE RPAS (Medium Altitude Long Endurance Remotely Piloted Aircraft System) Programmes.
OCCAR and EDA signed an Administrative Arrangement in 2012 which constitutes the foundation and establishes the framework of the cooperation between both organisations. The Administrative Arrangement considers OCCAR and EDA to be privileged partners in the field of defence capabilities development that will ensure that their activities are mutually reinforcing, non duplicative, coherent and complementary.
