UAE signs pact for unmanned aerial vehicles

posted on 17/02/2005: 1936 views

The UAE Armed Forces and South Korea's Uconsystem have signed an MoU to develop, manufacture and support unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and related systems. "This agreement represents critical steps in the development of the UAV research and technology centre," said Colonel Mahash Al Hameli, head of the Abu Dhabi-based centre that was established last year.

"Uconsystem is honoured to sign the agreement with the UAE UAV Research and Technology Centre and contribute towards the UAE's national objectives," said Dr Sang Keun Choi, chairman of Uconsystem.

"We have been providing high quality and leading edge technology systems and services to the Korean and international military community for years."

The new centre will serve as a point of excellence in the use of flight simulation tools to reduce the schedule, risks and required time of flight testing for complex UAV systems, air traffic control technologies and safety standards. The centre will promote aggressively international cooperation in the development of these systems leading to better inter-operability with the allies of the UAE.

These technologies also enhance the UAE forces' efficiency in support of critical humanitarian operations such as emergency relief, regional security and peace keeping operations.

The centre will also provide a UAV test bed and expertise to support the UAE's needs for testing and evaluation of new flight control technologies, avionics systems and operator interface components. (The Gulf News)
