Danish Armed Forces Select AV's Puma
The Danish Acquisition and Logistics Organization awarded AeroVironment a firm fixed-price order of $9.6 million to supply the Danish Armed Forces with the company's Puma AE small unmanned aircraft systems (UAS).
"Allied armed forces are procuring our small unmanned aircraft systems to give small tactical teams the ability to operate more effectively and safely, without requiring support from more expensive, scarcer resources," said Roy Minson, senior vice president and general manager of Unmanned Aircraft Systems at AeroVironment.
The 13-pound, battle-proven Puma AE is designed for land-based and maritime operations and is operated by AeroVironment's common Ground Control System.
