Rheinmetall subsidiary Rheinmetall Technical Publications GmbH and AeroVironment have teamed up to participate in a NATO procurement program for a small UAS intended for special operations and infantry applications.

The system must be capable of operating in all conditions and environments, quick to deploy, hand launchable, have a maximum weight of 10kg, and an operating range of 30km.

Rheinmetall and AeroVironment are thought to be ideally suited for developing and putting forward a compelling solution. AeroVironment designs, develops and produces unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), and its Puma 3 AE UAS is in operation with armed forces around the world, while its modular concept offers the optimum platform for a small UAS for special forces.

A certified aviation technology company, Rheinmetall Technical Publications is a systems house for tactical drones. With decades long experience, Rheinmetall is believed to have the necessary expertise to introduce, support, and adapt drone systems to meet customer specifications.
