CybAero announced today that it has been selected by the Swedish Defense Materiel Administration (FMV) to conduct test and demonstration flights from Sweden's world-leading Visby class corvette in third quarter of 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.
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.
