Work in silence :) Will we see a production of the Ofeq satellite in Morocco?🤔



Morocco signs a deal with Israel to build spy satellites.


IAI has signed several agreements with Morocco, and some of these areas are aviation and space industries in the form of a partnership. The agreement regarding space was signed at the beginning of this year.

"Interesting development for Morocco! The potential for becoming a hub for weapons production could have significant implications for the country's economy and strategic positioning. It will be intriguing to see how this unfolds in the coming years and what opportunities and challenges it brings. Looking forward to learning more about this development and its impact.

The CEO of BlueBird Aero Systems confirmed that a local production facility has been established in Morocco and that mass production will start in the "near future". When Morocco entered a partnership with the company, the company was a small company that sold 50% of its shares to IAI. Now we can expect that all types of loitering munitions will be produced under Moroccan specifications, as well as smaller reconnaissance, and surveillance drones.

Drones that Morocco produce


loitering munition:


1 - Sky striker

A suicide march appeared with Moroccan long-range PULS launchers. It has a range of 100 km and will be manufactured locally in Morocco. It has a 10 kg warhead and features an electric propulsion.

2- Spy-x

Fruitful cooperation between Morocco, and Bluebird. It can hit targets up to 50 km and have a warhead of 2.5kg.


In minute 1.50 you can see a SPY-X hitting an old decommissioned ratel vehicle.







Wander-B, and Thunder-B reconnaissance drones




Small tactical reconnaissance drones, which is used for ISTAR by the armed forces, as well as maintaining border security. Morocco took notes from the recent wars that have occurred in recent years. Such drones will play an important role in correcting fire from air, or ground assets such as artillery.

And what's below the line? Male UAVs?

Edit- what I mean is, is there any secret indeginous male UAV project going on?

Slowly my friend😂 We are aiming to build an advanced industry, and we are creating partnerships with several states to reach self-sufficiency. I do not have any information regarding any secret Moroccan Male program taking place, however, I would not be surprised if we requested technological assistance from our partners to develop such an asset. Let's say it is a cloudy environment, and by 2030 we will have a better picture of what Morocco has been able to achieve within the last 10 years.

Abdellatif Loudiyi, Minister Delegate in charge of the National Defense Administration, revealed that Morocco began working during the current year on preparing a vision for the creation of industrial zones specialized in the field of defense industry, stressing that “the Kingdom has taken firm steps towards establishing an advanced defense industry, and it has a group of foreign requests for investment.”


Around half a year ago Abdellatif Loudiyi, Minister Delegate in charge of the National Defense Administration, revealed that Morocco began working during the current year on preparing a vision for the creation of industrial zones specialized in the field of defense industry.


Today we hear the great news about the draft decree to create two defense industrial acceleration zones, which aims to provide industrial zones to embrace industries related to defense and security equipment and mechanisms, weapons, and ammunition systems.

First moroccan-made border surveillance system

The Central Regional Coordination Committee for Combating Illegal Immigration in Tan Tan Province (Oli site) supervised the operation of the electronic monitoring system, which aims to confront the risks inherent in cross-border crimes on the coast of this region. This system, which uses the latest monitoring technologies, opto-electronics and artificial intelligence, will enable modern coastal monitoring governance based on the following trilogy: 1. Documented, reliable and rapid decision-making process; 2. High coordination between civil and military authorities; 3. Quick and effective intervention. This system, which was designed and developed in a short period by Moroccan competencies and companies, is the result of close cooperation between the Royal Armed Forces and the Ministry of the Interior.
