AeroVironment
: 11 September, 2007  (Application Story)
AeroVironment, has announced that it has received an order to supply the Danish Army Operational Command with RQ 11 B, Raven B small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS). The order includes 12 systems, logistics support and training services, for a total value of $2.4 million. Each Raven B system typically consists of three aircraft, a hand-held ground control station, a remote viewing terminal, systems spares, and related services.
Three of the Raven B systems are planned for delivery to the Jagerkorpset (Army Special Forces), with the remainder destined for troop testing by deployed units at the Danish Army's Artillery Training Center.

'Denmark chose the Raven system after a thorough evaluation of competing offerings,' said Ilker 'Ike' Bayraktar, vice president of international initiatives for AV. 'Raven's track record for reliable combat operation led our customer to select it at a time when Denmark needs a significant number of operational UAS immediately. AV has now delivered more than 7,000 small unmanned aircraft worldwide and Ravens have logged tens of thousands of flight hours with the U.S. Armed Forces in Iraq and Afghanistan. This order is an indication of increasing interest in our small UAS by allied military forces.'
