Volatus Aerospace signed a global marketing and distribution agreement with UAVTEK, a British drone technology designer and manufacturer focused on defence and public safety. This week, the UAVTEK Ares and Bug will be presented at the AUVSI Xponential in Orlando Florida.
“UAVTEK has delivered remarkable UAV technologies to defence over the last few years, with hundreds deployed in the field,” said aid Glen Lynch, CEO of Volatus. “These technologies provide us with an opportunity to fulfill the demand for drone technologies designed and manufactured in NATO countries. The information captured by these drones is 100 per cent protected – no data is recorded in the drone and because it uses military-grade radio it is less susceptible to electronic warfare.”
Steve Emerson, Volatus VP for Europe, Middle East, and Africa, will take the lead on expanding the UAVTEK footprint globally.
The drones produced by UAVTEK are described as highly modular with many payloads available. All technologies share the same controller and the same battery type. The platforms have been field-tested in Lapland in -40C. There is a full range of drones available from fixed-wing to nano.
