New web portal spotlights innovative products and services from UMS SKELDAR

UMS SKELDAR, a world leader in the design and manufacture of both vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) and fixed wing high-endurance unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), and provider of innovative solutions both within the defence and civilian sectors, has launched a re-modelled website boasting a range of new features. 

The new website, which went live in November 2016, incorporates newly produced videos and a range of download options including specifications for the unrivalled multi-role portfolio of Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS). UMS SKELDAR – the joint venture with Saab – brings together the four platforms to create Europe’s only provider of high endurance vertical take-off (VTOL) and fixed wing UAVs, across the 3-12+ hour endurance range.

Additionally, a new section covering Managed Services and Consultancy, includes a range of bespoke solutions including CONOPS (Concept of Operations Support) and ISR training modules to fleet management and maintenance structures.

The website is designed to become an essential portal for visitors, covering diverse interest areas, and builds on the compelling graphics approach of the original site, enabling fast assimilation of critical content and the ability to drill down to details including requesting further information.  


Rotary/VTOL (Vertical Take-Off and Landing):   Fixed wing:


SKELDAR V-200 – an innovative UAV using the technology of Saab, ideal for civil security and military operations. The V-200 is the first rotary winged medium-range UAV that can be operated from a tailored control station. Equipped with multiple capabilities including surveillance and 3D mapping, the aircraft gives edge in any environment – day or night. The system can hover for hours while providing real-time information to a control station or to a remote video terminal. Launched from historically difficult locations such as the deck of a ship, a travelling convoy or other small stationery areas, the SKELDAR V-200 is designed to provide real-time intelligence and surveillance as a force multiplier for land, civil security and maritime applications. The compact solution is fully autonomous, controlled by high-level-commands such as “Point and Fly” and “Point and Look”.
