KrattWorks, an Estonian deep-tech startup has signed a contract worth 15 million euros with Estonian Centre for Defence Investment to supply aerial target drones to Estonian Defence Forces for the next 7 years.
“The purpose of the contract is to provide Estonian Defence Forces with the target drones required for air defence training”, says the CEO Mattias Luha.
KrattWorks’ innovative target drone is designed as a tailless aircraft with a flight time up to 30 minutes and a max speed is 180 km/h. The drone is equipped with 2 smoke generators and infrared-flares, designed and produced by RUF Eesti Ltd.
The drones have an autonomous flight mode but can also be controlled manually beyond the visual line of sight. As a safety measure, our drone will return to the starting position, switch off or land autonomously, should the connection be lost.
This May the startup took part in the Market Discovery Tour in Poland by Scale-up Champions.
