According to a press release from the Federal Government, Germany sends a shipment of 54 Quantum-Systems Vector unarmed aerial vehicles to Ukraine.

The Vector reconnaissance drone developed by Quantum-Systems has proven to be a true asset in the war in Ukraine. Kyiv ordered 33 early last August and has ordered another 105 since.

The electric vertical takeoff unmanned aerial vehicle (eVTOL UAV) in the shape of a propeller aircraft has a length of 1.63 meters (64 inches), a wingspan of 2.8 meters (110 inches), and is used for aerial reconnaissance.

It has a flight duration of 120 minutes and can transmit video footage and data from a distance of up to 30 kilometers (18.6 miles), which is the range of many artillery weapons.

Quantum-Systems says the Vector is part of a 2-in-1 system that uses the same main fuselage, ground controller, data link, sensors, and AI capabilities.

It can alternatively be configured as the Scorpion multi-copter without any changes to the avionics hardware. Its open systems architecture allows for continuously expanding the system’s capabilities and functionality. The Vector series went into production in 2020.

Quantum-Systems is a Munich-based drone manufacturer. They are an aerial data intelligence company that provides multi-sensor data collection products to government agencies and commercial customers.

Right now the company has also produced Trinity Pro and Trinity F90+ drones. The company is also involved in various research projects including the project KIMoNo (AI-based, cross-type mobility optimization in non-urban regions).
