The unique configuration of the Apus provides a distinct operational advantage in terms of flight duration, maneuverability, and the payload that can be carried.

Within the framework of the MOU, advanced drone systems for a variety of tactical military missions for users on land, at sea and in the air will be developed.

CEO of Israel Aerospace Industries, Boaz Levy commented, “Cooperation between IAI and Aerotor will allow us to leverage synergies in our product lines and promote the business growth of both companies. Both in normal times and during times of emergency, IAI continues to provide its customers with the best solutions. Collaboration agreements like the one we have just signed bring us to the forefront in all the fields in which we are active, thus increasing our portfolio of solutions.”

Raz Geva, Chairperson and CEO of Aerotor Unmanned Systems explained “Aerotor develops pathbreaking platforms in terms of their flight duration and the payload they can carry. Together with IAI as a leading partner in the aviation sector and in unmanned platforms in both the military and paramilitary fields, we will expand our customer base around the world. Aerotor and IAI have already begun to cooperate, and together, the two companies will create new business opportunities, for the benefit of both our companies.”
