Insitu Pacific and Perth-based Innovaero have signed a memorandum of agreement to collaborate on the development of Australian technology for uncrewed aerial systems (UAS).
The agreement will see Insitu Pacific provide its common architecture software and ground control solutions to enable Innovaero to progress development of its VTOL UAS, the Innovaero FOX.
The two companies have also agreed to look at ways in which Innovaero can support Insitu Pacific by contributing to its global supply chain.
“As part of Boeing, Insitu Pacific has extensive experience in autonomous systems technology projects in Australia and across the region, and we look forward to leveraging this experience to work with Innovaero on new opportunities,” said Andrew Duggan, managing director, Insitu Pacific.
“I am very proud that as a 100 percent Australian-owned company, Innovaero has been able to demonstrate a sovereign design and manufacturing capability that is clearly world class,” said Innovaero Group CEO, Simon Grosser.
“Innovaero recognises that partnerships with established defence prime systems integrators such as Boeing’s Insitu Pacific, along with ongoing support and encouragement from the Australian Government, are key to accessing global markets for unique, Australian products such as FOX.”
