General Atomics will provide digital video integration services for the Predator unmanned vehicle system, the Defense Department announced Thursday.

The remote-controlled aircraft carries a multi-spectral targeting system to integrate an infrared sensor, TV cameras and a laser designator and illuminator.

General Atomics will provide the services under an $8,143,903 cost-plus-incentive-fee contract it won from the U.S. Air Force.

The Pentagon expects work to complete by May 30, 2014.
