Orbital adds Singapore to its customer base

19th March 2020 - 14:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Orbital UAV has signed an MoU with an unnamed large Singapore-based defence company for the design, development and low-rate initial production of multi-fuel engines for UAVs.

This follows an MoU earlier in March with Insitu. 

Three phases of work are proposed in the newest MoU, which also includes an initial contract to begin the programme.

Phase 1 (to last 18 months) covers development, integration and supply of an initial prototype. If the Singaporean customer accepts this prototype, Phase 2 will begin with the supply of a limited number of additional prototype engines ‘for further evaluation requirements by the customer’, Australia-based Orbital announced on 19 March.

Following the successful completion and acceptance of Phases 1 and 2, the customer (a new client for Orbital) may then authorise low-rate production of the multi-fuel engine in Phase 3.
