CybAero, which develops and markets unmanned helicopters, decided to build a test center which will contain the industry's most sophisticated equipment. Construction commenced on November 1st, and the test center is scheduled to be ready for occupancy by April 2015.

“Our testing represents a large and important part of our commitment to offer customized solutions. Our goal is to become the leading supplier in the market based on customer satisfaction,” said Mikael Hult, CybAero’s CEO.

The test center will occupy 300 square meters and will be located only minutes away from CybAero’s head office in the Mjärdevi Science Park in Linköping, Sweden. The company is currently recruiting test engineers who will be responsible for the test center where tests will be carried out 24 hours a day.

“At the test center, we will be able to test components, customer-specific solutions and, together with clients, perform complete factory tests, including functionality and performance prior to delivery,” Hult explained.

The advanced test center will provide CybAero with significantly better capacity than the company previously had access to. A number of necessary tests had been conducted by CybAero’s suppliers, but now we will have the ability to test components, subsystems and complete systems all under one roof.

“We will also be able to hold our customer training in the new location,” Mikael Hult added.

“The large orders we received during the past year and our progress in refining our products and systems are now complemented by a new, advanced test facility,” he concluded.

CybAero develops and manufactures Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) and associated sensor systems for safer and more cost-effective operations in hazardous environments.The company has made a great international impact with its APID 60 helicopter (photo), which can be adapted for both military and civilian applications such as coastal and border surveillance, search and rescue missions, and mapping.

CybAero has its head office in the Mjärdevi Science Park in Linköping, Sweden.
