France has a military drone radar everyone’s desperate to get

About 50 kilometers south of Paris, a factory is looking to double production of one of France’s best-selling pieces of military kit — Ground Master air surveillance radars.

It's a result of President Emmanuel Macron's pressure to boost defense production in response to the war in Ukraine and the need to upgrade Europe's militaries after years of neglect, as well as from rising demand across the world.

During his new year's address to the armed forces, Macron listed Thales, the developer of the radar system, among the defense companies that have significantly ramped up manufacturing in the past two years.
