Asseco will deliver UAVs to Polish army
Asseco Poland and the Armaments Inspectorate have signed an agreement for the delivery of micro-class Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) to the Polish Armed Forces. The drones will be used for day and night observation during military operations. Asseco’s proprietary hardware and software will be produced in Poland.
Under the signed agreement, Asseco will provide 24 drones intended for observation in various conditions. They will be equipped with sensors operating in both visible light and infrared band. The system, delivered to the Ministry of National Defence, offers, among other things, the ability to merge reconnaissance data obtained from both sensors.
Asseco is a proven partner for the defence sector. This is yet another time when we will provide specialized equipment for various types of military operations. The unmanned system we have created is a project of young Polish engineers and will be entirely produced in Poland, of which I am particularly proud. It is a very versatile solution that can be used both by uniformed services: military, police, fire department, as well as in civil applications such as agriculture - said Zdzisław Wiater, Director of International Organizations and Security Sector Solutions Division, Asseco Poland.
Each of the 6 sets delivered by Asseco will consist of 4 UAVs, steering and control stations together with a transmitting and receiving system. The equipment is to increase situational awareness on a battlefield with minimal involvement of ground personnel - it will be operated by one soldier.
