SKELDAR V-200

SKELDAR V-200 rotary platform to take centre stage as 3F Advanced Systems joins forces with UMS SKELDAR at Aero India 2017.

The official partnership between 3F Advanced Systems, a subsidiary of $750mil 3F Group India, and UMS SKELDAR, the joint venture between Saab and UMS Aero, is the first collaboration of its kind in the subcontinent and will be the launch of the company’s ‘Make in India’ technological development programme. Alongside this, which will be showcased at this year’s Aero India, the event will also see the first live air show demonstration of the NATO-compliant, Saab technology powered, SKELDAR V-200.

In its 11th year, Aero India 2017 comes at a time when India and the subcontinent are experiencing exponential growth due to a rapidly growing economy, increasing defence preparedness challenges and the opening up of defence production to the private sector. As part of this, the requirement for UAVs is on the rise as both the military and wider civilian sectors begin to understand the benefits they can bring. Through the new exclusive partnership with 3F Advanced Systems, UMS SKELDAR – Europe’s only provider of both Rotary and Fixed Wing unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) platforms – will be showcasing the capabilities of its unique SKELDAR V-200 via both a first air show live demonstration in the region and an opportunity to have a briefing with senior executives on the 3F Advanced Systems stand.
