Steadicopter says integration of the operating system enhances the autonomous capabilities of Black Eagle UAV.

Steadicopter, exhibiting at IDEX for the first time,  highlighted cooperation agreements with fellow Israeli companies such as UAV simulation specialist Simlat and UAV control technology developer Simplex.
