AeroVironment has announced it will donate over 100 Quantix Recon UAS to Ukraine, independently of the US government.

AeroVironment announced on 19 April its intention to donate more than 100 Quantix Recon UAS and operational training services to the Ukrainian MoD and territorial forces.

The first half of the donated equipment is expected to be delivered this week, with operational training commencing immediately and more equipment to follow. 

A spokesperson from the company told Shephard: 'We have committed to delivering roughly 100 units in the initial shipment' but also 'we have ample units to supply Ukraine with even more systems', suggesting this may be the first of more donations to come.

Wahid Nawabi, chairman, president and CEO
