OTTAWA, ON–(Marketwired – December 10, 2014) – The Alaska Center for Unmanned Aircraft Systems Integration (ACUASI) has purchased ING Robotic Aviation’s Responderrotary wing unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) system. The robotic aircraft will be used for research into systems integration and specific UAV applications, as well as to increase the centers focus on robust Arctic proven technology.
ING Robotic Aviation has sold two complete Responder vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) robotic aircraft with sensors, as well as a Ground Control System (GCS) and ancillary equipment. As well the company is providing a two-week training package.
“After researching available systems that met our performance and payload integration requirements, we determined that the Responder was the best solution, and actually exceeds our weather, robustness and payload lift requirements,” stated Marty Rogers, Director of ACUASI.
“This is also a first step in developing a partnership with ING Robotic Aviation,” added Mr. Rogers. “They have extensive experience in operating in difficult conditions, and take a serious, aviation company approach to both their technology and operations. These are people we can work with.”
