AeroVironment has announced that a U.S. ally and longtime customer awarded the company a firm-fixed-price contract valued at $2.6m in February.
The contract is for AeroVironment’s recently introduced Puma LE and included spares to support the customer’s existing fleet of AeroVironment tactical UAS.
The contract award period of performance is one year.
Commenting, Rick Pedigo, vice president of sales and business development for Aerovironment, said: “Puma LE is the newest member of our combat-proven family of tactical unmanned aircraft systems.”
Adding: “Puma LE provides customers with Group 2 UAS endurance capabilities, nearly doubling the time on station of Puma 3, with cost savings and the footprint of a Group 1 unmanned aircraft.”
