CybAero Invests in Advanced Unmanned Helicopter Test Facility

By Caroline Rees / 18 Nov 2014

CybAero Unmanned HelicopterCybAero, a Swedish company that develops and markets unmanned helicopters, has decided to build a test center which will house the company’s most sophisticated test equipment. Construction has already commenced and the test center is scheduled to be ready for occupancy by April 2015.

“Our testing represents a large and important part of our commitment to offer customized solutions. Our goal is to become the leading supplier in the market based on customer satisfaction,” says Mikael Hult, CybAero’s CEO.

The test center will occupy 300 square meters and will be located only minutes away from CybAero’s head office in the Mjärdevi Science Park in Linköping, Sweden. The company is currently recruiting test engineers who will be responsible for the test center where tests will be carried out 24 hours a day.

“At the test center, we will be able to test components, customer-specific solutions and, together with clients, perform complete factory tests, including functionality and performance prior to delivery,” Mikael Hult explains. The advanced test center will provide CybAero with significantly better capacity than the company previously had access to. A number of necessary tests had been conducted by CybAero’s suppliers, but now the company will have the ability to test components, subsystems and complete systems all under one roof.

“We will also be able to hold our customer training in the new location,” adds Mikael Hult. “The large orders we received during the past year and our progress in refining our products and systems are now complemented by a new, advanced test facility,” Hult concludes.
