At Eurosatory - The Danish Acquisition and Logistics Organization today announced at Eurosatory it has awarded AeroVironment (NASDAQ:AVAV) a firm fixed-price order of $9.6 million to supply the Danish Armed Forces with the company’s Puma AE™ small unmanned aircraft systems (UAS). AeroVironment was selected following a competitive evaluation.

“Allied armed forces are procuring our small unmanned aircraft systems to give small tactical teams the ability to operate more effectively and safely, without requiring support from more expensive, scarcer resources,” said Roy Minson, senior vice president and general manager of Unmanned Aircraft Systems at AeroVironment.
Eighteen nations outside the United States have purchased AeroVironment’s Puma AE, Wasp or Raven B small UAS.
The 13-pound, battle-proven Puma AE is designed for land-based and maritime operations and is operated by AeroVironment’s common Ground Control System.
About AeroVironment’s Small UAS
RQ-11B Raven®, Wasp AE™, RQ-20A Puma™ and Shrike VTOL™ comprise AeroVironment’s Family of Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems. Operating with a common ground control system (GCS), this Family of Systems provides increased capability to the warfighter that can give ground commanders the option of selecting the appropriate aircraft based on the type of mission to be performed. This increased capability has the potential to provide significant force protection and force multiplication benefits to small tactical units and security personnel. AeroVironment provides logistics services worldwide to ensure a consistently high level of operational readiness and provides mission services for customers requiring only the information its small UAS produce. AeroVironment has delivered thousands of new and replacement small unmanned air vehicles to customers within the United States and to eighteen international governments.
The Qube™ small UAS is tailored to law enforcement, first response and other public safety missions. Small enough to fit easily in the trunk of a car, the Qube system can be unpacked, assembled and ready for flight in less than five minutes, giving the operator a rapidly deployable eye in the sky at a fraction of the cost of manned aircraft and large unmanned aircraft.
