Partnership with Silvus Technologies to integrate MN-MIMO communication products

Quantum-Systems and Auterion GS Enhance Their Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems with Silvus Technologies’ Advanced MN-MIMO Communication Products

Los Angeles and Munich – June 16, 2020 – Quantum-Systems GmbH and Auterion GS Inc are pleased to announce a partnership with Silvus Technologies to integrate Silvus’ advanced, MIMO Streamcaster Radios into Vector™ and Scorpion™ small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS).

The MN-MIMO technology in the Silvus 4200 and 4400 Streamcaster series radios provides high speed, tactically secure data, and high definition video communications in tough RF environments. For sUAS customers, the integration of a Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET) radio into our systems enables robust, assured networking between the air vehicle and the ground controller and interoperability with other nodes on the network.

2in1 System – More possibilities in one product

Vector and Scorpion form a 2-in-1 sUAS system kit. Scorpion is a tri-copter that can be utilized for dynamic urban environments and other mission sets that require a combination of maneuverability and hover to collect ISR and Situation Awareness information. By configuring the base fuselage with fixed wings and tail section, Scorpion transforms into Vector, an energy-efficient, fixed-wing VTOL for longer range, longer endurance ISR missions.

Increased customer benefit through strategic cooperation

The pairing of Silvus’ MN-MIMO technology with the Vector and Scorpion 2-in-1 system will provide long range, robust, and reliable communications and surveillance capabilities suitable for rugged and rapidly changing environments.

Florian Seibel, CEO of Quantum-Systems said, “We have tested several tactical mesh radios in several scenarios before making our decision to go with Silvus: range, reliability and performance are class-leading.  Because there are versions available from Silvus that are non-ITAR this will help to sell our Vector and Scorpion on a global scale”

David Sharpin, CEO of Auterion GS said, “We are very pleased to announce our partnership with Silvus Technologies as we bring Vector and Scorpion to US Defense and Security markets. Flexible, multi-node, tactical networking is a key element of our sUAS ecosystem. Last week we announced our Skynav Gov scalable ground controller.  Silvus radios will be integrated with  Skynav controllers which will in-turn be integrated into the Vector/Scorpion sUAS product offering in the US.”

Kasey Cooper, Director of Unmanned Systems for Silvus Technologies, said “The partnership between the Quantum-Systems, Auterion GS, and Silvus Technologies aligns with our desire to collaborate with cutting edge companies and technologies. This teaming will give our customers, foreign and abroad, a highly sophisticated end-to-end solution for their sUAS needs. The Vector and Scorpion 2-in-1 sUAS system kit solves a long standing CONOPS problem I’ve seen. The quick reaction capabilities of a small VTOL and long endurance desires of a fixed-wing, all in one kit.”

Auterion and Quantum-Systems partner on two new VTOL sUAS for US Defense and Security markets

Auterion and Quantum-Systems partner on two new VTOL sUAS for US Defense and Security markets

Integration with Auterion’s Open Source Operating System aligns with DoD’s Group 1 UAS Architecture

Los Angeles, California, and Munich, Germany – 10 February 2020 – Today, Auterion Government Solutions Inc (AGS Inc) and Quantum-Systems GmbH announced that they have partnered to bring the Vector and Scorpion small Unmanned Aerial Systems #sUAS to the U.S. Government Defense and Security markets. The partnership brings together best-in-class sUAS hardware with a secure, scalable, open source, operating system, Auterion OS. Auterion OS is currently employed on an ecosystem of sUAS from small multi-rotors to hybrid VTOL Group 2 air vehicles.

Vector and Scorpion form a 2-in-1 system kit. Scorpion is a tri-copter that can be utilized for dynamic urban environments and other mission sets that require a combination of maneuverability and hover to collect ISR and Situation Awareness information. If required it
comes with a tethering system to enable 24/7 operations.

By configuring the base fuselage with fixed wings and tail section, Scorpion transforms into Vector, an energy-efficient, fixed-wing VTOL for longer range, longer endurance ISR missions.

Quantum-Systems currently utilizes a proprietary flight control stack as well as its QBase3D command and control software on these two air vehicles. When the platforms are integrated with Auterion Enterprise PX4 TM software, Auterion Ground Station software, and the Auterion Hand-Held Ground Control Station (H-GCS) they form an open ecosystem that is aligned and integrated with DoD’s Group 1 UAS Architecture and requirements for a common Group 1 control system.

This integration enables these sUAS to be extensible, tailorable and interoperable for customers in both the US Defense and Security markets.

David Sharpin, CEO of AGS Inc said, “we are excited to be working with Quantum-Systems to bring forth a new, integrated, rucksack portable sUAS that we feel will transform the way our customers collect, process and disseminate ISR and Situation Awareness information, in all environments. AGS Inc and Quantum-Systems are standing up manufacturing operations in the US and are utilizing assured subsystems and software to provide a secure solution offering for our customers”.

Florian Seibel, CEO of Quantum-Systems said, “teaming up with AGS Inc will change the market in many ways. AGS Inc is a key partner in the development and deployment of DoD’s Group 1 UAS Architecture. Together with our new tactical platforms Vector and Scorpion, this
will meet the requirements and needs of the U.S. Government Defense and Security markets. We will enable our global customers to either run our proprietary stack or be integrated with AGS Inc’s enterprise software and H-GCS from now on. By setting up a US entity, Quantum-Systems will move closer to the customer while working on setting up a large scale US production”.
