Czech-based Primoco UAV SE and Swiss-Swedish UMS Skeldar have teamed up as part of a cooperation agreement to provide selected customers with a combination of the Primoco One 150 fixed-wing and UMS Skeldar’s V-150 rotary wing unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Enabling organisations the versatility to use both platforms as part of their missions, this agreement is a significant step forwards in terms of how UAVs can be used to form one solution.
Primoco UAV SE, a Czech company that develops and manufactures the One 150 UAV, successfully flight tested the simultaneous control of multiple unmanned aircraft from one control station at their airport in Písek Krašovice on 20 October 2021.
Sales of the Czech manufacturer of unmanned aerial vehicles Primoco UAV SE reached CZK 12.8 million in the first half of this year and increased by 34% compared to the same period in 2020. Since January, the company has been able to start negotiations for new contracts in new markets, but due to pandemic restrictions limiting travel, these activities have been complicated and delayed. Primoco UAV SE is also restrained by the speed of the bureaucracy in parts of the state administration in the Czech Republic, especially the Civil Aviation Authority, in connection with the issuance of the necessary certification required by European legislation. This limits the speed of expansion which the company needs to meet the growing demand for its unmanned aircraft.
