Orbital UAV has continued to demonstrate its progress and growth in the unmanned aerial vehicle market with flight testing of its world-class propulsion systems in conjunction with customer Insitu Pacific, a division of Insitu Inc. and a wholly owned subsidiary of The Boeing Company.
The program, conducted at Insitu Pacific’s testing and training facility in Queensland, represents the first time Orbital UAV’s propulsion systems have been flown in Australia and complements the Company’s existing flight testing activities in the USA.
“Our flight program with Insitu Pacific expands our capability to fast track flight hour development and validation – gathering valuable data in real world conditions,” said Todd Alder, Managing Director and CEO of Orbital UAV.
“These flights test the limits of our engines and highlight opportunities where we can continuously improve our products – increasing reliability and field serviceability to ensure we are providing propulsion systems that set the benchmark for performance,” he said.
