EDGE, UAE-based advanced technology and defence group, and Baykar, an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) and artificial intelligence technology company in Turkey, are collaborating to integrate EDGE smart weapons onto Bayraktar UAVs.

Under the programme, EDGE will integrate their DESERT STING 16 precision-guided munition onto the Baykar TB2 UAV, with other payload integrations on other BAYKAR platforms to follow.

“At EDGE, we are proud to be partnering with Baykar, a leading company in advanced unmanned aerial systems,” said H.E. Faisal Al Bannai, Chairman of the Board of EDGE. “The opportunity to add to both companies’ capabilities is an important milestone in our partnership.”

“Integration of the DESERT STING 16 and other EDGE weapons and systems will be valuable options in our UAV payload offerings,” said Selçuk Bayraktar, Chairman and CTO of Baykar “Our strategic alliance agreement with EDGE, an international leader in advanced technology, will provide further options to our client base.”

The Bayraktar TB2 is a medium-altitude long-endurance tactical UAV, capable of conducting ISR and armed attack missions with fully autonomous taxiing, take-off, landing and cruise.
