“In this area, our company can combine expertise in bespoke hardware and systems integration, ensuring the best possible interface for end users.”

“With our experience in designing operator consoles suited to challenging environments, we are proud to have been selected as a partner to UMS SKELDAR. The increased demand for unmanned aircraft is also reflected in the need for RPS solutions that offer great flexibility and work to reduce any possibility of pilot fatigue.

As we venture deeper into controlling UAS and air capabilities, we strengthen our total defense offering and prove our role in digitalizing the battlefield.”

MilDef’s console allows UMS SKELDAR to provide the most ergonomically intuitive workspace for flight operators in terms of functionality.

There is a significant demand for UAS in the defense sector. UMS SKELDAR’s UASs are designed to support a range of various naval and public security missions, including Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) and Electronic Warfare (EW). The console accommodates two operators – one for the Pilot in Command (PIC) and the second for the payload operator.
