CybAero selected to tender mobile APID systems to Thailand
CybAero has for a long time conducted dialogue with the Thai Coast Guard regarding RPAS (Remotely Piloted Aircraft System) -based surveillance. CybAero has now qualified as one of the few final candidates for tendering in the government's public procurement.
CybAeros solution based on APID One and M.O.C. (Mobile Combined Hangar and Management Center) is the only helicopter system in the procurement, and thus differs from other candidates offering RPAS based solutions based on fixed wing. The offer value is in the order of 30 MSEK and the coast guard plans to receive deliveries in 2019. The deadline for the procurement is 5 June with an expected decision during this summer.
- We are experiencing increased interest in the autonomous helicopter market in the APID segment (payload 50 Kg). An establishment in Thailand would provide a natural platform in Asia for future assignments and sales, says CybAero CEO Tommy Magnusson.
The tender relates to CybAero's existing APID One system which meets the customer's requirements in the procurement. A deal is conditional on export authorization from the Inspectorate of Strategic Products.
