Sweden's CybAero has delivered three unmanned helicopters that feature automatic landing system to China.
The helicopters are equipped with a deck-landing system that CybAero has developed together with Airbus that allows automatic takeoff and landing from a vessel. This was successfully tested under realistic conditions outside Karlskrona, Sweden in late April.
The three systems of unmanned helicopters meant for the Chinese Customs, and ordered by Jolly have been delivered from Linköping today, the company announced Wednesday.
It has been further agreed that CybAero will send a flight team to China to train the end-customer's staff and to be on-site for the implementation of the final part of the FAT (Factory Acceptance Test), which needs to take place in China instead of Sweden due to the Swedish rules and regulations.
With the change in venue payment is now expected in September/October as opposed to August.
The systems, which are designed to operate from ships, are very advanced and have undergone numerous tests before delivery.
CybAero is first in the world to launch these type of system.
CybAero has ended a test campaign with their ship based system APID One in the last week of April. The clients of the campaign were FMV (the Swedish Defence Procurement Agency) in collaboration with the Swedish Navy
Delivery of three unmanned helicopter systems to China Customs has been rescheduled for early 2016 due to additional requirements and features. The delay was caused by additional requirements and features and the fact that the complex system required extensive verification testing and some upgrades, which are now complete, CybAero said in a statement Wednesday
