German engineering company awarded by Chinese Armed Police Forces (CAPF)

The Chinese Armed Police Forces (CAPF) are the most skilled and equipped top elite units within the “Middle Kingdom”. The General himself personally made the long journey to Germany to hand over the Golden Emblem of the CAPF to engineer and company CTO Udo Juerss. The head of the Chinese Armed Police Forces and his 12-member delegation of highly decorated police officers said: “The microdrones are playing a more and more important role in our different operations, and have done a good job in aerial monitoring, reconnaissance and photographing.”

The microdrones are rotary wing aircraft is based on the principle of a quadrocopter. They are equipped with high-quality cameras and can be quickly deployed to dangerous or inaccessible regions. The aerial platforms of microdrones are also being used in different areas, such as environmental research and search and rescue operations.

At the 1st International Roundtable Police-Workshop in April this year the CAPF had presented video-clips and speeches about their successful operations and training techniques. The focus though was on the microdrones, which during a long period of testing and several real operations had demonstrated their effectiveness and reliability.

In surveillance missions and challenging Search & Rescue operations in remote terrain, the microdrones convinced the Chinese elite units and now will be used all over People’s Republic of China.

Udo Juerss can feel doubly honored; the Golden Emblem, which usually only is entitled to diplomats, was awarded for the first time to a German inventor as a sign of deep appreciation and esteem.

Since 2005, the microdrones GmbH has produced and exported more than 1000 aerial platforms worldwide.
