Airbus has for the first time formally delivered two A400M new generation airlifters to two different nations in one day. The company handed over the aircraft on 20 March to the European Organisation for Joint Armament Cooperation (OCCAR), in charge of the management of the A400M Programme, representing Germany and France – at a ceremony in Seville, Spain.
Ministers from the A400M Partner Nations had a productive meeting with industry. We discussed the progress and the next steps on the A400M Programme which is already delivering much welcomed initial operational capability to several of the Partner Nations' Air Forces.
OCCAR, on behalf of the ESSOR Participating States, signed on 12 January 2016 an agreement with the Wireless Innovation Forum for the exchange of information in order to support the harmonization of the Software Communications Architecture (SCA) standards at an international level.
