As we have mentioned before in GEOPOLITIKI.COM, LOTUS is a unique opportunity for Greece to demonstrate its ability both in the production of cutting-edge technologies, in the manufacture of composite materials and in the implementation of secure communications, as well as in the coordination of domestic and foreign partners by private and public bodies.

The program’s UAV has a number of innovative features, including:

  • non-detection by enemy forces due to its stealth design
  • ability to operate in a long range and away from enemy threats
  • airworthiness and interoperability based on NATO standards
  • reliable telecommunications
  • using artificial intelligence algorithms
  • cybersecurity and scalability
