UAE-based integrator for comprehensive defense solutions, EDT, has recently announced its collaboration with Steadicopter.

Steadicopter – a company working in the rotary unmanned aerial systems (RUAS) industry – and EDT are partnering to supply the former’s advanced rotary tactical unmanned aerial systems.

The two companies will adapt Steadicopter’s RUAV products to meet the requirements of various customers within the UAE and other specific market segments.  

Mohamed Bin Jabr Al Suwaidi, Owner & CEO, EDT said: “As EDT continues to serve its customers with innovative, novel, unique, tailormade solutions, we had scouted Steadicopter and its Eagle family – a platform of solutions which fits synergistically with other solutions manufactured in the region.

“We found that Steadicopter’s systems, which are used by various armed forces around the world and have already been operationally proven in various missions, meet the highest standards and needs of our customers.

“We are proud to launch them in the UAE, using both companies’ strengths and relevant accumulated experience, and anticipate that this will be a long term cooperation that will cater to the needs of various defense and HLS organisations.

“We continue to prioritise investments and partnerships that meet current and future needs.”

Steadicopter’s Eagle family delivers proven solutions for a wide range of military, HLS and civilian applications. The Eagle family provides solutions for any in-field requirement, enabling vertical takeoff and landing and steady hovering, with advanced mission sensor suites for day and night operation.

“We thank EDT for expressing confidence in the unique and proven systems developed by Steadicopter,” added Noam Lidor, VP Sales, Marketing & Business Development at Steadicopter.

“We believe that, together, we will be able to provide comprehensive solutions for various end users. At the upcoming IDEX exhibition in Abu Dhabi, we will for the first time present the Black Eagle 50H in its new configuration, for the benefit of intelligence missions in challenging environmental conditions and the protection of land and sea borders.”
