CybAero to deliver three UAS in August

29th June 2016 - 08:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


CybAero and Chinese company Jolly have agreed that three UAS ordered by Jolly will be delivered in August 2016, CybAero announced on 27 June.

The three APID 60 vertical take-off and landing (VTOL)-based UAS were ordered by Jolly in January 2014. They will be deployed by China Customs from vessels for tasks such as counter smuggling, port management and customs control.

Deck-landing tests with the UAS were conducted off the coast of Sweden earlier in 2016. 

Rolf Schytt, chief executive officer of CybAero, said: 'This is a very positive improvement for CybAero, instead of the original plan to deliver the first system in June, the second system in September and the third system in November, we’ve managed to agree on a final deal that will deliver all three systems no later than the end of August.’
