US “radar money” may arrive by September

02-09-2008

The first monies connected to the placement of the proposed US radar base on Czech soil may arrive by September, according to the Czech Technical Institute. The payments are related to the deal signed between the US and Czech Republic during the summer, which stipulates that the US side will work closely with the Czech scientific community in various technology-related projects. This agreement means that the Czech Republic will have a favourable climate in which to introduce or sell Czech-developed technology to the US. For its part, the US will invest in projects which it deems of interest. One such project which has recently hit the headlines is a special drone pilot system, which does not require a human pilot.
