IDEX 2017: UMS SKELDAR is Targeting the Middle East

Heavy fuel engine to meet the demands of navies around the world

At Aero India the UMS SKELDAR V-200 made it first flight in public. And it was sold to the MoD of Indonesia. As well they signed a cooperation with 3F Advanced Systems based in India. The V-200 offers a heavy fuel engine to meet the demands of the navies around the world. The next steps will be the integration of more sensors; two should be operable at the same time within one platform – e.g. a gimbal and radar. One focus will be maritime sensors. Officially the UMS SKELDAR will not be offered as a weaponised version, but from its capabilities it could be done. In the next month the UMS SKELDAR will make a tour through the Middle East.


The V-200 offers a 3D mapping, fully automated vertical take-off and landing (VTOL), single or dual operating setup and open interfaces and C4SIR systems as features. Payloads could be stabilised EO/IR sensors, Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), Ground Moving Target Indicator Radar (GMTI) LIDAR, cameras and communication relay systems, just as examples. The data link range is good for 90 km with a flight endurance of 5+ hrs.
