Remotec and AirRobot have entered into a distribution agreement for AirRobot's line of small unmanned aerial systems (UAS) in US, Northrop said in a statement Tuesday.

Remotec is a subsidiary of Northrop Grumman. Under the agreement, Remotec is the sole reseller of these products to the first responder and law enforcement market in the US.

The companies also are working to integrate Remotec's unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) and AirRobot's aerial systems to create new ground/air capabilities that meet a wide range of operational requirements.

As part of the agreement, which commenced earlier this month, Remotec also will provide service, maintenance and technical support for all AirRobot systems in the U.S.

"This distributorship arrangement gives our customers access to small vertical takeoff and landing [VTOL] UAS product line that represents some of the most mature technology in the industry with a decade-long track record," said Walt Werner, director, Remotec.

"AirRobot systems complement Remotec's UGVs to enhance our customer's mission effectiveness both on the ground and in the air," Walt said.

AirRobot produces electrical powered multi-copter systems that can carry a payload weighing up to 7 pounds and fly for as long as 50 minutes. The systems can also carry a wide range of payloads – including multi-spectral cameras and recorders, synthetic aperture radar, gas and chemical sensors – and as many as three payloads simultaneously.

"The products and capabilities perfectly complement each other, with each system providing increased operational value for the other," Thomas Meyer, president of AirRobot US said.
