Unmanned, versatile and mission ready

Saab and UMS Aero Group AG, a Swiss supplier of tactical UAVs, have formed a joint venture under the name UMS SKELDAR. Skeldar is a versatile system for a wide range of applications such as reconnaissance, identification, target acquisition and electronic warfare. A number of COTS high resolution EO/IR, SAR and EW sensors are available. Alongside design and production, UMS SKELDAR develops its own associated systems which serve to fly various types of UAV’s simultaneously on the same Ground Control Station (GCS). The company can also provide customers with qualified ISR instructors for training of vehicles or to interpret sensor information alongside the RPAS capability requirement.
