Quantum-Systems announces delivery of first VECTOR™ ISR systems to the Dutch Ministry of Defense

Quantum-Systems announces delivery of first VECTOR™ ISR systems to the Dutch Ministry of Defense

Germany, Munich, October 27th, 2022 – Quantum-Systems GmbH, an innovative developer, designer, and manufacturer of advanced unmanned aerial systems (UAS), announced today the delivery of the first VECTOR™ systems to the Dutch Ministry of Defense (MoD), together with BSS Holland BV.

Founded in 2015, Quantum-Systems is at the forefront of UAS development. Its electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) systems boast industry-leading flight endurance, ease of operation, and reliability. The 2-in-1 vertical take-off reconnaissance UAS, VECTOR™ provides long-endurance, versatility, and flexibility, exceeding the performance of conventional UAS platforms.

VECTOR™ streams live data in real-time using a Mesh IP encrypted data link with a range of 15+ kilometres. Equipped with advanced AI capabilities, the data assessment process of VECTOR™, is supported by automatic detection, identification, and tracking algorithms, which provide on-the-ground tactical units with important safety and efficiency benefits. With a single flight time of 120 minutes, it is suited for applications such as ISR for enhanced situational awareness, area mapping, Search & Rescue (SAR), and convoy and VIP protection. Vector integrates dual electro-optical (EO) and infrared (IR) gimbaled sensors, enabling missions both, at day and night.

Established in 2008, BSS Holland concentrates on providing C5ISR and robotics solutions for challenging security and defense mission gaps. The collaboration with Quantum-Systems is focused on building future readiness for the Tactical Edge, helping professionals in the defense and homeland security organizations by providing state-of-the-art Unmanned Aircraft Systems. Quantum-Systems’  VECTOR™ & SCORPION™ 2-in-1 ISR system is part of the BSS Holland product portfolio since 2021.

BSS Holland supports the Dutch MoD with delivering, training, and providing service for their Light-Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems catalogue, by pre identifying systems suitable for the use of the MoD. The existence of the drone catalogue drastically reduces the extensive and thorough acquisition time procedures. The Dutch Ministry of Defense uses drones mainly for tasks in the field of Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance.

 

Supporting the Dutch Ministry of Defense with aerial data intelligence

The Dutch Ministry of Defense chose VECTOR™ as a preferred system due to its versatility, data protection and security capabilities, enabled by the AES-Encrypted mesh IP data link, which is optimized for tactical applications and delivers unprecedented performance in the most challenging environments. No further details on the quantity and timing of the deliveries will be given as agreed by all parties involved.

The real-time onboard data processing and the capabilities of QBase Tactical Mission Control software which can dynamically adjust the mission in flight, makes VECTOR™ the perfect UAS for a wide range of non-invasive aerial operations, allowing ground teams to orchestrate complex missions with a few clicks.

Peter Thiel, Project A, and Sanno Capital invest in German Drone Robotics Leader Quantum-Systems

Peter Thiel, Project A, and Sanno Capital invest in German Drone Robotics Leader Quantum-Systems

Germany, Munich, October 16th, 2022 – Quantum-Systems GmbH, an innovative developer, designer, and manufacturer of advanced unmanned aerial systems (UAS), today announced the closing of a financing round with new investors Peter Thiel, Project A, and Sanno Capital.  
Founded in 2015, Quantum-Systems is at the forefront of UAS development. Its electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) systems boast industry-leading flight endurance, ease of operation, and reliability. Customers in the public and private sectors alike use Quantum-Systems’ versatile UAS for security, defence, humanitarian, and geospatial operations.  
This injection of capital will accelerate the company’s R&D investment into artificial intelligence, autonomy, edge computing, and robotics, bringing a sophisticated software layer to Quantum-Systems’ advanced airframes. This round of funding also allows Quantum-Systems to more aggressively pursue sales to meet growing demand across Europe for sophisticated UAS, in sectors ranging from defence, to agriculture, to mining, to construction, to energy. Customers can use Quantum’s UAS in a variety of use cases, including search and rescue operations after natural disasters, automated railway inspections after severe weather, and for aerial data intelligence on large-scale construction operations.  

“The future of UAS is in neither software nor hardware alone, but in the intelligent synthesis of the two. With that understanding, Quantum-Systems is a leap ahead of its competition.”  

Peter Thiel

Technology entrepreneur and venture capitalist

American and Israeli companies have historically dominated the drone market. We are excited to see Quantum-Systems step up and provide a homegrown European solution that doesn’t sacrifice tech quality.
