The second is the MILSTD sheltered station (GCS), an advanced modular control station for maximised mission capability and success. Designed to meet rigorous military standards, the GCS provides enhanced capabilities for complex and large-scale operations.

The maintenance contract signed enables the customer to receive comprehensive maintenance for all of Aeronautics’ UAV systems ensuring maximum fleet readiness for all situations. This contract demonstrates Aeronautics’ commitment to comprehensive and ongoing customer support.

“These latest contracts reflect Aeronautics’ commitment to long-term partnerships with our key customers,” says Dan Slasky, President & CEO of Aeronautics Group. “These new contracts further expand our series of successes this year, demonstrating the trust our customers place in Aeronautics’ technology and the company’s continued growth.”
