UMS Skeldar has joined forces with QinetiQ Target Systems to enable both organizations to provide the platforms and solutions for a joint Canadian maritime program. It will include the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) contract.
Platforms such as Skeldar V-200 and QinetiQ’s Obsidian Counter UAV Drone Detection solution took center stage at CANSEC, Canada's global defense and security trade show May 30 to 31. It was an opportunity to showcase the next generation of UAV technologies in action, and to discuss how this new partnership will provide the solutions to the military and civilian maritime community’s UAV requirements.
