Saab signs con­tract for Skeldar UAS for mar­itime op­er­a­tions

SP's MAI - - UNMANNED -

De­fence and se­cu­rity com­pany Saab has signed a con­tract to de­ploy the Skeldar un­manned aerial sys­tem (UAS) for mar­itime op­er­a­tions. Skeldar UAS will be op­er­a­tionally de­ployed with the cus­tomer be­fore the end of this year and will be used in naval op­er­a­tions where the ben­e­fits of a ver­ti­cal take-off and land­ing UAS are most prom­i­nent.

Skeldar is a flex­i­ble multi-mis­sion sys­tem set to suc­cess­fully meet mis­sion ob­jec­tives on land or at sea. It is based on the same smart de­sign and in­no­va­tive tech­no­log­i­cal so­lu­tions that have be­come the trade­mark for Saab’s aero­nau­ti­cal prod­ucts and sys­tems.

“Skeldar UAS is an ex­cel­lent choice for mar­itime op­er­a­tions thanks to its high flight per­for­mance, heavy fuel engine and easy-to-main­te­nance de­sign. We con­tin­u­ously im­prove the sys­tem with the in­te­gra­tion of new sen­sors and dif­fer­ent pay­load ac­cord­ing to cus­tomer needs,” says Len­nart Sin­dahl, Head of Saab’s Busi­ness Area Aero­nau­tics.

The in­dus­try’s na­ture is such that de­pend­ing on cir­cum­stances con­cern­ing the prod­uct and cus­tomer, in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing the cus­tomer will not be an­nounced.

Saab serves the global mar­ket with worldlead­ing prod­ucts, ser­vices and so­lu­tions rang­ing from mil­i­tary de­fence to civil se­cu­rity. Saab has op­er­a­tions and em­ploy­ees on all con­ti­nents and con­stantly de­vel­ops, adopts and im­proves new tech­nol­ogy to meet cus­tomers’ chang­ing needs.
