UAS Europe announces UAV system acquisitions

30th August 2012 - 12:33 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


UAS Europe has announced that it has acquired the intellectual property rights, manufacturing capabilities and airframe stock for two different unmanned aircrafts from UAV Services and Systems, Germany. The company made the announcement 29 August 2012.

Under the agreement, UAS Europe has acquired the rights to the X-Sight and mX-Sight. The X-Sight has a 4-stroke engine, wingspan of 3.15 meters, a payload capacity of 7 kg and endurance of up to 10 hours; while the mX-Sight is a hand or catapult-launched aircraft with an electric engine, wingspan of 2 meters, payload capability of 3.5 kg and endurance of up to 2 hours. The two aircraft have been renamed as Spy Owl 200 and Spy Owl 300 respectively. 

According to UAS Europe, UAV Services and Systems’ limited resources prevented it from taking the development and manufacturing of the two UAV systems ‘to the next level’.

UAS Europe project manager, Henrik Wolkesson, commented on the acquisition: ‘We see the acquisition of the these two systems as a very strategic step where we now can provide three different types of UAVs. UAV trainer system, portable and reliable hand launched UAVs and not the least a long endurance system with great surveillance capabilities.

'UAV Services and Systems has done a tremendous job in assuring superb building quality, long endurance and very reliable UAVs. We are proud to be the new owners of such professional UAV systems.'
