Germany-based Aerodata AG as well as South Africa-based Milkor (Pty) Ltd and its Polish group company Milkor Polska Sp. z o.o. have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in the field of unmanned airborne maritime surveillance.

The partnership between the German provider of special mission solutions and the South African / European provider of defense solutions for air, land, and sea was formalized during this year’s prestigious Paris Air Show and marks a significant milestone in the advancement of airborne surveillance technologies.

Under this strategic alliance, Aerodata, known for its cutting-edge mission system and airborne sensor technology, will complement Milkor‘s brand-new unmanned airborne system Milkor 380. This collaborative effort aims to migrate general maritime surveillance operations from the manned to the unmanned domain.
