Antonov and WB Elec­tron­ics to work on un­manned air­craft com­plex


On Septem­ber 22, 2015, at Arms and Se­cu­rity fair, a mem­o­ran­dum of un­der­stand­ing was signed be­tween Antonov Com­pany, part of the state con­cern Ukroboron­prom, and WB Elec­tron­ics of Poland. With this doc­u­ment the par­ties con­firmed their in­ter­est in co­op­er­a­tion on im­ple­men­ta­tion of WB Elec­tron­ics’ tech­nolo­gies in de­vel­op­ment of tac­ti­cal un­manned air­craft com­plex be­ing de­signed by Antonov and needed by armed forces of Ukraine.

The pro­ject is based on Antonov’s ex­pe­ri­ence in de­sign, pro­duc­tion and af­ter-sale sup­port of air­craft of var­i­ous classes and in­ten­tions in com­bi­na­tion with high-tech equip­ment pro­duced by WB Elec­tron­ics.

Ac­cord­ing to Mykhaylo Gvoz­dov, act­ing Pres­i­dent of Antonov com­pany, “Sign­ing of this mem­o­ran­dum is start­ing point of a new Antonov’s in­ter­na­tional pro­gramme aimed to re­in­force de­fence of our state. We are sure, that the com­plex be­ing de­vel­oped will take a proper place on the mar­ket and will play a sig­nif­i­cant role in strength­en­ing the de­fence power of Ukraine.”
