AeroVironment has received a $17.4 million contract to provide its Puma AE II small UAS, training and support to an allied nation, the company announced on 2 April.

The contract has been awarded under the US government’s foreign military sales programme.

The man-portable Puma All Environment (AE) UAS is capable of landing in water or on land. It features a Mantis i45 sensor suite, supporting the operator with extended flight time, providing imagery for tactical ISR maritime and land based operations.

David Sharpin, VP, sales and business development for AeroVironment, said: ‘The combat-proven Puma AE delivers rapid and effective tactical intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance in a wide range of operating environments – over land and sea – providing the actionable intelligence to help customers proceed with certainty.’

Delivery is expected by September 2019.
