Indonesia First To Purchase Skeldar V-200 UAS

UMS SKELDAR announced today (15-02-2017) its working partnership and the commencement of a training program contract with the Ministry of Defence (MoD) in Indonesia.

The MoD of the Republic of Indonesia deployed the SKELDAR V-200 as part of performance and acceptance tests during Q4 2016, paving the way for the procurement and pilot training in Indonesia. With the world’s second longest coastlines, the tests and patrol evaluations confirmed the multi-payload and low footprint of the SKELDAR V-200 across land and navy applications.

Jakob Baumann, CEO and Delegate of the Board at UMS SKELDAR, highlighted the significance of the contract and stressed the importance of UAV solutions across the priority APAC region covering defense, security, and civilian sectors:

“We’re proud to announce our contract with the Ministry of Defence of the Republic of Indonesia, which cements our business model of forming strategic relationships within priority regions across the world,” said Baumann.

“The SKELDAR V-200 is the leading RPAS multi-payload and high-endurance platform within the mid-range UAV market, incorporating Saab’s experience of 80 years in the aviation industry. This will be demonstrated at Aero India 2017 as part of the first ever live flight demonstration of the SKELDAR V-200 at an air show.”

The drone is currently being displayed at Aero India 2017, an aerospace and defense conference taking place in Bengaluru Feb. 14-18.

“The SKELDAR V-200 is the leading [remotely piloted aircraft system] multi-payload and high-endurance platform within the mid-range UAV market, incorporating Saab’s experience of 80 years in the aviation industry,” Baumann added. “This will be demonstrated at Aero India 2017 as part of the first ever live flight demonstration of the SKELDAR V-200 at an air show.”
