Mr. Collet-Billon then stressed: "Beyond their technical competence and proven know-how, the contractors have met the challenge inherent in the schedule to conceive a demonstrator of such complexity. Dassault Aviation, Saab, Alenia, EADS Casa, HAI and RUAG have managed this technological challenge with a high degree of professionalism."
