Collins Aerospace will integrate a number of its mission systems and software with SRB Aerial Systems' UAS platforms under a memorandum of understanding that is hoped to evolve into a long-term strategic partnership.

Collins Aerospace signed an MoU with Saudi tactical UAS (TUAS) developer SRB Aerial Systems at IDEX 2023 on 21 February to support research, development and execution of UAS and robotics systems for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA).

The partnership will see the integration of Collins’ software, radio communication, imaging and sensor expertise into SRB’s platforms. The integration will also include TASE 400, Piccolo Elite, SCISR Radio and Rapid Edge mission systems.

CEO of SRB Ahmed Al-Jehani said at the signing ceremony that the partners will develop a framework to support UAS endeavours to grow the company’s offering.
