UMS SKELDAR LaunchesV-200B

: Jul 15, 2018 - : 7:26 pm

UMS SKELDAR, a leading provider of rotary Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) solutions and avionics software, has announced the launch of the V-200B, a comprehensive modification of its mid-sized heavy fuel engine VTOL, in tandem with a production drive in Sweden to support its worldwide marketing programme targeting maritime customers.
The the new version of the UAV boasts of enhanced features including extended endurance, engine management system and payload capabilities. The commitment to comprehensive modifications to what is widely regarded as the template for the mid-range Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) rotary UAV was announced on the eve of the biennial Farnborough International Airshow 2018.
The V-200B completed its trials earlier in 2018, following an intensive modification audit, based on in-theatre performance feedback and the strategic imperative to further widen competitive advantage.
 “It is no secret that more players are attempting to enter the maritime market for rotary UAVs. Recent navy contracts have stipulated the role and specification, and this has confirmed our strategy of development is absolutely the right move at the right time. We are able to fly longer, over five hours, at maximum payload capacity through weight savings from design modifications and our 2-stroke engine configuration provides significantly unmatched time between overhauls (TBO), all of which are vital to maritime operations by military and civilian customers,” said David Willems, Head of Business Development at UMS SKELDAR, the UAV joint venture between Sweden’s Saab and UMS AERO of Switzerland.
