MilDef and UMS SKELDAR have introduced a Remote Pilot Station (RPS) console, providing optimal workspace, functionality and improved ergonomics for UAS operators.
MilDef has designed, developed, and manufactured the working pilot console for UMS SKELDAR’s V-200 medium-range VTOL UAS, who in turn will deliver the UAS and consoles for maritime defense forces.
