CybAero tests China Customs UAV

4th June 2015 - 11:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


CybAero has completed factory acceptance tests and trials for the first of three VTOL UAS to be delivered to China Customs, the company announced on 3 June.

CybAero received the order in January 2014 for three systems based on the company's APID 60 autonomous helicopter. The order includes ground control stations and landing systems that allow the UAV to take-off from and land on the ship deck.

The systems will be installed on three of China Customs' new vessels and operated for customs control, anti-smuggling operations, port management and other applications.

The tests and trials were performed by the company in Sweden, together with the Chinese shipyard building the ships for China Customs. 

Remaining testing will be conducted on-site in China. CybAero will now ship out the first system to the customer, where the system will be integrated with the ship after the final tests are complete.

The final two systems are scheduled to be shipped shortly.
