TEKEVER, the European market leader in unmanned aerial systems (UAS), today announced it has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with BTI Defence, a defence procurement specialist, headquartered in Indonesia, to be the exclusive provider of UAS technology for the Indonesian defence ministry for two years.

The partnership, signed at the Eurosatory 2024, will see TEKEVER provide first and second-line support, deploying its UAS for immediate assistance and monitoring for potential threats and risks. Under the MOU, BTI defence will have access to the full suite of TEKEVER’s systems including the AR3, AR4, AR5, and from 2025, the ARX as well as ATLAS, the interface that presents intelligence and data insights. The UAS systems feature cutting-edge AI, machine learning, edge computing and high-precision sensors, revolutionizing intelligence gathering and surveillance with unparalleled accuracy and efficiency.

This latest collaboration with BTI Defence marks TEKEVER’s expansion into Indonesia where it will drive the development of the country’s UAV market, among the armed and security forces,  as well as private and state-owned entities. It highlights TEKEVER’s growing global footprint with the company also retaining contracts in Europe, Africa, and North America.

TEKEVER’s CEO, Ricardo Mendes, said, “We are delighted to partner with BTI Defence who share our commitment to promoting stability and security. Our cutting-edge technology, agile operating model and relentless innovation will prove critical in enhancing security in the region. This partnership is further evidence of our reputation as a trusted partner for governments and security agencies across the globe.”

Director of BTI Defence, Mr Peter Tjahjono, said, “This agreement between BTI Defence and TEKEVER comes at a time when Indonesia is expanding its investment in tactical and strategic UAVs as part of its national surveillance and border control operations. TEKVER’s market leading performance and reliability is the perfect match to Indonesia’s operational requirements.”
