High Eye signs multi-year contract with UAV Navigation – sUAS News – The Business of Drones
High Eye, the manufacturer that produces the Long-Range VTOL UAV called the Airboxer®, signed a multi-year contract with UAV Navigation.
The agreement includes the VECTOR-600 premium autopilot that meets ISO
9001:2015 standards and which is compliant with MIL-STD-810F (vibration,
acceleration, humidity, rain, temperature, etc.) and with MIL-STD 461F (EMI).
“At UAV Navigation we are very proud to be part and parcel of the Airboxer®
which is, in fact, a class on its own.
Knowing High Eye very well, we must say that
we are highly impressed by the level of engineering, its testing capabilities, and
its quality commitment. But most of all, we admire the commitment and the
dedication of the High Eye team to invest more than 8 years in the development
of the Airboxer®.”, says Tobias, CEO of UAV Navigation.
The Airboxer® is a Long-Range VTOL UAV that meets the demanding STANAG
4738 standards (NATO). It flies on heavy fuel (Jet A1) and it is capable of hovering
for hours. Placed between the short endurance electric drones and the much
larger VTOL UAV systems, it has created its own niche.
‘’We have been working with UAV Navigation for more than 8 years and we have
always been happy with this partnership. The dedication and passion for its
products and for aviation in general, its service level in combination with the will
to keep on learning and developing makes UAV Navigation the perfect match for
High Eye. I am convinced that this partnership will continue to deliver growth in
quantity and quality for years to come”, says Joost de Ruiter, CEO of High Eye.
