UMS SKELDAR Signs Contract With Ministry of Defence in Indonesia

Europe’s UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) provider, UMS SKELDAR, has completed delivery and acceptance tests for Indonesia of the SKELDAR V-200 VTOL (Vertical Take-Off and Landing) UAV. The deal is the world’s first delivery of SKELDAR, the only heavy fuel UAV platform in its class.

World leading designer and manufacturer of high endurance RPAS (Remotely Piloted Aerial Systems), UMS SKELDAR announced its working partnership on 15 February 2017 and the commencement of a training programme contract with the Ministry of Defence (MoD) in Indonesia.

The MoD of Indonesia deployed the SKELDAR V-200 as part of performance and acceptance tests during Q4 2016, paving the way for the procurement and pilot training in the country.  Indonesia has the world’s second longest coastlines and the tests and patrol evaluations confirmed the multi-payload and low footprint of the SKELDAR V-200 across land and navy applications.

UMS SKELDAR is a joint venture between UMS AERO Group and Saab and is Europe’s only provider of both rotary and fixed wing platforms.
