LINKÖPING, SWEDEN — Defence and security company Saab has signed a contract to deploy the Skeldar Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) for maritime operations. Skeldar UAS will be operationally deployed with the customer before the end of this year and will be used in naval operations where the benefits of a Vertical Take Off and Landing UAS are most prominent.
Skeldar is a flexible multi-mission system set to successfully meet mission objectives on land or at sea. It is based on the same smart design and innovative technological solutions that have become the trade mark for Saab’s aeronautical products and systems.
“Skeldar UAS is an excellent choice for maritime operations thanks to its high flight performance, heavy fuel engine and easy-to-maintenance design. We continuously improve the system with the integration of new sensors and different payload according to customer needs,” says Lennart Sindahl, Head of Saab’s business area Aeronautics.
