GA-ASI Selects 18 Participants for Virtual Blue Magic Belgium

As part of the second annual Blue Magic Belgium industry engagement event hosted by General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, Inc. (GA ASI), 18 Belgium-based companies were selected to present their ideas and capabilities to a panel of GA-ASI technical experts.

The panel evaluated the companies in a virtual interview setting and made decisions on which capabilities can support the development of MQ-9B SkyGuardian, the GA-ASI Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) selected by Belgian Defense.
The presentations were held during the week of September 21.  This year’s event was held virtually due to travel and in-person meeting restrictions stemming from the coronavirus.
As part of last year’s event, AeroSimulators Group (ASG), AIRobot, ALX Systems and Hexagon joined Team SkyGuardian, which already included these five Belgium companies: SABCA, Thales Belgium, ScioTeq, ST Engineering and DronePort. GA-ASI is working with these companies now to generate next-generation capabilities for their RPA.
The companies participating at the virtual Blue Magic Belgium were Airobot, AKKA BENELUX, Altran Belgium, ALX Systems, Any-Shape, Cenaero, Feronyl, Hexagon Geospatial, IDRONECT, Lambda-X, ML2Grow, Moss Composites, Optrion, Oscars, ScioTeq, Siemens, VITO-Remote Sensing, and von Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics.
