Insitu partners with Santos Lab
Insitu has announced the launch of its partnership with Santos Lab, a leading/innovative developer and manufacturer of hand-launched unmanned aircraft systems (UAS). “Partnering with Santos Lab is the first step in establishing a local presence for technology transfer, which will enable Insitu’s UAS business in Brazil to grow. We are excited to team with Santos Lab — one of the country’s most successful indigenous UAS companies,” said Insitu President and CEO Steve Morrow.
Joining forces with a young, innovative company such as Santos Lab is a natural fit for Insitu; the company is proud of its own entrepreneurial beginnings nearly two decades ago. Insitu quickly recognised Santos Lab’s potential to grow their capabilities in synch with its own growing need for a local partner to handle more complex requirements and execute Insitu’s capability roadmap.
“Having a local partner that is already serving the Brazilian armed forces is a great strategic advantage. We look forward to jointly developing solutions for the current and future needs of the Brazilian armed forces,” said Insitu Business Development Executive Juan R. Gomez, an Insitu Business Development Executive for Southern Europe and Latin America.
