CybAero and Indra entered into a co-development agreement in 2009 that included customization of CybAero's helicopter platform APID 60 to maritime end-uses, tailor-made for Indra's needs.
The jointly developed system is being marketed by Indra under the Pelicano product name.
Under the agreement, CybAero was responsible for the development and adaptation of the mechanical platform and Indra developed certain electronics and systems integration. Indra will now integrate the helicopter with its proprietary sensors and other equipment.
"We have had a good business relationship with Indra and the project has provided both of us with vital knowledge and technology which we will incorporate into our own products and systems. We will continue to develop maritime applications and provide them to our customers, albeit based on our own technology and our own platforms," said CybAero's CEO Mikael Hult.
