The German drone manufacturer has opened its center in Ukraine
German drone manufacturer Quantum Systems has opened a technical servicing and logistics center in Ukraine to support contracts with the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense, according to the company's website.
The center provides training for operators in the use and technical maintenance of the Vector system, the company's reconnaissance drone. It also serves as a local procurement center for spare parts and repair services.
In late May, Quantum Systems received its third order from the Ministry of Defense for the delivery of 300 medium-range reconnaissance drones of the Vector type. The procurement is funded by the German government. The previous two orders were placed in January 2023 (105 UAVs) and August 2022 (33 UAVs).
The company claims that since August 2022, the Vector has been extensively used and tested in combat situations in Ukraine. The UAV offers unmatched maneuverability and rapid deployment, ready for use within two minutes. It provides continuous target detection regardless of weather conditions, reaches speeds of up to 72 km/h, and has a long flight endurance.
Thanks to its built-in artificial intelligence, the Vector ensures effective and convenient real-time aerial reconnaissance. The system relieves the operator from constant video monitoring, as its embedded algorithms allow for automatic object identification and instant transmission of critical reconnaissance information to the ground.
"Quantum Systems firmly supports Ukraine, and we strive to help defend their country. The trust of the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense in our systems means a great deal to us. We consider it a privilege to contribute to Ukraine's defense, and we continue to aim for delivering more advanced systems to the armed forces," commented Florian Seibel, the CEO of the company.
Founded in 2015, Quantum Systems is headquartered at Oberpfaffenhofen Special Airport, located 20 km west of Munich, Germany. The company specializes in the development, design, and production of small unmanned aerial systems. It creates next-generation UAVs for clients in defense, security, and the public sector.
Previously, Ukraine's Military Intelligence confirmed that they would receive 100 German AI-enabled drones.
