Italy and France sign B1NT agreement

Italian and French Ministers of Defence signed a new agreement to cooperate on new developments of the joint SAMP/T programme. The new phase of the SAMP/T programme is named B1NT. Signature took place in Paris on June 14.

Last December OCCAr and Eurosam signed a contract, launching B1NT activities, only with France though. Italy is now formally committing to join B1NT, resuming 25 years old bilateral cooperation on SAMP/T with its French partner.
