MilDef and UMS SKELDAR launch future-ready Remote Pilot Station console

MilDef and UMS SKELDAR have launched a bespoke RPS console that provides optimal workspace, functionality and improved ergonomics for Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) operators. MilDef has designed, developed and manufactured a bespoke working pilot console for UMS SKELDAR’s V-200 platform. Complete UAS systems, including MilDef’s latest console, will be delivered to maritime defense forces.  

There is a significant demand for UASs in the defense sector. UMS SKELDAR’s UASs are designed for various missions, including surveillance, reconnaissance, and electronic warfare. With MilDef’s console, the partners will provide the most ergonomically intuitive workspace for flight operators in terms of functionality. The console accommodates two operators – one for the Pilot in Command (PIC) and the second for the payload operator.

“With our experience in designing operator consoles suited to challenging environments, we are proud to have been selected as partner to UMS SKELDAR. The increased demand for unmanned vehicles is also reflected in the need for RPS solutions that offer great flexibility and reduce pilot fatigue, an area where our company can combine our expertise in bespoke hardware as well as systems integration, ensuring the best possible solution for end users. As we venture deeper into the realm of controlling UAS and air capabilities, we strengthen our total defence offering and prove our role in digitalizing the battlefield,” says Daniel Ljunggren, CEO MilDef Group.

We are grateful for MilDef’s invaluable contribution in creating a console that perfectly meets our customers’ operational needs. We both understand the importance of catering to our clients’ unique operational requirements, mission objectives and desired functionalities, and they have understood the need for this console to provide an optimal workspace for flight operators. We appreciate MilDef’s commitment and ability to deliver exceptional solutions,” says UMS SKELDAR’s Vice President of Business Development, Richard Hjelmberg.
