RESOLUTION

[Translated by Agneta Norberg]

This was shown at a meeting on Valentines Day here in Kemi.

From February 8th to February 14th ,German troops together with the Finnish Army tested transport helicopters in Arctic conditions in Rovaniemi (A city in the middle of Lapland where there is an airfield, my notice - translator).

During the same week there was a program on Finnish TV about Unmanned Aerial Vehicles beeing tested in Lapland at the Kemijärvi Airfield.

Unmanned drones are used for surveillance and war missions. ROBONIC, a Finnish Corporation, producing UAVs, has its office in Tammerfors, and is hosting this activity and offers it products to the world market.
