Swedish Armed Forces to Test CybAero RPAS from Visby Corvette

 

December 2nd, 2014 defencetalk.com

 

First North-listed CybAero has been selected by the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) to conduct test and demonstration flights from Sweden’s world-leading Visby class corvette in Q3, 2015.

 

Sweden-based CybAero was chosen ahead of other international competitors. It is estimated that the flights, which will employ CybAero’s APID helicopter systems, are to be conducted by the Swedish Armed Forces over Swedish waters in Q3, 2015. The purpose of the flights is to test the strategic and tactical benefits of these systems onboard Swedish Navy vessels.

 

“We are, of course, very proud to have been selected, and this is a testament to the high level of confidence FMV has placed in us,” says Mikael Hult, CEO of CybAero.

 

One of the most important applications of remotely piloted aircraft systems (RPAS) is within maritime applications, and in recent years, CybAero has worked hard to establish its systems in this segment. CybAero will soon make its first deliveries to China Customs, which is the company’s first end client within maritime applications.

 

“Now that we have been chosen by FMV to conduct the test and demonstration flights, we have a great opportunity to put our systems on display, and this will serve as a good reference point for potential clients in Sweden and abroad,” says Mikael Hult.

 

CybAero develops and manufactures Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) and associated sensor systems for safer and more cost-effective operations in hazardous environments. The company has made a great international impact with its APID 60 helicopter, which can be adapted to coastal and border surveillance, search and rescue missions, and mapping.

 

CybAero’s head office is in the Mjärdevi Science Park in Linköping, Sweden. The company has more than 40 employees and has been listed on the NASDAQ OMX First North since 2007. Remium Nordic AB is the company’s certified adviser.

The 2P ammunition can be programmed in different function modes providing optimized effect against a wide range of targets.

 

“This order further demonstrates that BAE Systems is trusted to develop and provide new, high-tech products to meet customer requirements,” says Lena Gillström, managing director of Weapon Systems, Sweden at BAE Systems. “With the 2P ammunition, we have a new member in our product portfolio.”

 

Development of the 2P ammunition began in January 2013, and was done in cooperation between BAE Systems, FMV and the Swedish Armed Forces.

BAE Systems Bofors delivered the first pieces of the Archer artillery system to FMV Monday, September 23. The acquisition of Archer is a joint Nordic project in collaboration with Norway and a total of 24 pieces was commissioned for the Swedish Armed Forces from BAE Systems Bofors.

 

    This is a project that delivers one of the best artillery systems. We have had both successes and setbacks in the project, but now the first four pieces of the Archer artillery system could finally be delivered, says Lena Erixon, FMV Director General.

 

    The fact that we could receive the first pieces now is a result of our Norwegian partners at FLO, the supplier BAE Systems Bofors – and of course FMV who in the situation acted flexible and powerfully. All have helped to get the pieces to the Artillery regiment. They will now be transported to Boden where FMV, FLO and the artillery regiment will continue with both tests and training, says Lena Erixon.

 

Delivery of the first Archer pieces from Lena Gillström BAE Systems Bofors to FMV's Director General Lena Erixon took place in Karlskoga, Monday, 23 September at 16.00 pm. Thereafter delivery inspection and transportation to the artillery regiment occurred.
