Our Bureau - : Apr 2, 2024 - : 11:15 pm

Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) and Aerotor Unmanned Systems have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), outlining their collaboration in product development and commercial cooperation on Tuesday (Apr. 2).

Under the MOU, both companies will jointly develop advanced drone systems tailored for various tactical military missions on land, at sea, and in the air. This agreement encompasses the engineering development and marketing of Aerotor’s Apus multicopter, which boasts a unique configuration utilising a central heavy-fuel propulsion system piloted through a variable-pitch mechanism. This design offers a distinct operational advantage in payload capacity, flight duration, and manoeuvrability.

“Cooperation between IAI and Aerotor will allow us to leverage synergies in our product lines and promote the business growth of both companies. Both in normal times and during times of emergency, IAI continues to provide its customers with the best solutions. Collaboration agreements like the one we have just signed bring us to the forefront in all the fields in which we are active, thus increasing our portfolio of solutions,” said Boaz Levy, CEO of Israel Aerospace Industries.

“Aerotor develops pathbreaking platforms in terms of their flight duration and the payload they can carry. Together with IAI as a leading partner in the aviation sector and in unmanned platforms in both the military and paramilitary fields, we will expand our customer base around the world. Aerotor and IAI have already begun to cooperate, and together, the two companies will create new business opportunities, for the benefit of both our companies,” said Raz Geva, Chairperson and CEO of Aerotor Unmanned Systems.

The partnership between IAI and Aerotor signifies a strategic move towards enhancing capabilities and offering cutting-edge solutions to meet evolving industry demands.
