Robonic Ltd Oy, a subsidiary of Safran Electronics and Defence, has delivered a third-generation KONTIO pneumatic launcher to Leonardo.

Designed to launch tactical unmanned air systems (UAS) and target drones, this high-pressure pneumatic launcher is capable of catapulting several types of aerial target drones. This fresh success broadens the company’s customer base and further proves its position as a leading supplier of pneumatic zero-point launchers. With its launchers delivered worldwide, Robonic has more than three decades of operational experience in supporting the evolving requirements of the global UAS community.

The KONTIO launcher is a highly transportable universal launcher with a large mass and speed envelope, which makes it highly suitable for several types of targets or tactical UAS. It is designed to launch air vehicles of up to 140kg with a 70 m/s exit velocity or alternatively 500kg at 37 metres/second.

Delivery of our KONTIO launcher to Leonardo and Italy is a major milestone to develop our market and the advanced solutions to meet the demands of the target drone market,” commented Robonic’s Managing Director, Juha Moisio.
