Textron Systems, a Textron Inc. business, has announced its participation in Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Denmark, a national industry network for UAS organizations to promote development and testing, as well as to expand the market in Denmark and Europe.
Founded in 2012, UAS Denmark and its network include representation from all parts of the industrial supply chain – including industry, research institutions and user organizations.
Textron Systems’ businesses develop and integrate products, services and support for aerospace and defense customers, as well as civil and commercial customers, including the Aerosonde UAS for oil and gas operations. Textron Inc. is a multi-industry company with a global network of aircraft, defense, industrial and finance businesses.
Textron Systems will exhibit at the Nordic UAS Event at the UAS Test Center Denmark on May 27-28.
“Textron Systems is proud and eager to bring more than 30 years as a UAS designer and manufacturer to the UAS Denmark network of innovators and the Danish industry – as together we explore new applications for UAS,” says Bear Midkiff, Textron Systems’ director of business operations for Europe and Africa.
“We are happy to see one of the biggest players in the UAS market joining our national network,” adds Michael Larsen, UAS Denmark’s head of UAS. “For Denmark as a UAS country, this membership proves our ability to attract international companies that can potentially start cooperation with Danish companies and make the UAS business stronger in the country.”
