UAS Europe announces Spy Owl 200 UAV contracts
UAS Europe has announced that it has sold a number of its Spy Owl 200 unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to customers in Europe and South America.
The customers will not be named, but UAS Europe said that the European customer is a large civilian organisation, while the South American customer will deploy the UAV in an agricultural role.
Spy Owl 200 is a hand- or catapult launched, electrically powered UAV with a wingspan of 2 meters, payload capability of 3.5kg and endurance of up to 2 hours depending on configuration.
Patrik Söderholm, project manager at UAS Europe, Sweden, said: ‘We see these sales as an acknowledgement of our qualities in unmanned aerial systems as well as a start of a future expansion of our systems in the international market. We aim to take a leading role in supplying systems for agricultural and research purposes, however we do not exclude military sales.’
