teaming for tactical drones

Rheinmetall subsidiary Rheinmetall Technical Publications GmbH and AeroVironment have partnered to participate in a NATO procurement program for a small UAS intended for special operations and infantry applications. 

The system is required to have all-weather functionality, quick deployment, hand launchability, a maximum weight of 10kg, and a 30km operating range.

Rheinmetall and AeroVironment believe they are ideally suited for developing and putting forward a compelling solution that meets the requirements of NATO special forces.

AeroVironment’s expertise in the design, development and production of unmanned aerial systems is evidenced in its Puma 3 AE UAS, which is in operation with armed forces around the world. AeroVironment believes Puma 3 AE’s modular concept offers the optimum platform for a small UAS for special forces. 

A certified aviation technology company, Rheinmetall Technical Publications is a systems house for tactical drones. Benefiting from decades of experience, Rheinmetall believes it has the necessary expertise to introduce, support, and adapt drone systems to meet customer specifications.
