Primoco UAV SE has won a contract for the delivery of eight One 150 Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs).

The value of these transactions is €6.8 million.

“The contract for eight aircraft for a total of €6.8 million plus option for a delivery of further sixteen aircraft has been signed with a non-European customer. The delivery includes UAVs, sensors, control stations and training,” said Ladislav Semetkovský, CEO of the company. The actual delivery will take place in the first half of 2023 and is subject to the approval of the Licensing Administration of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Czech Republic.

In October, Primoco UAV SE signed a contract to deliver two One 150 UAVs worth €1.7 million to a European customer.

This year, the Czech manufacturer has seen increased interest in UAVs, especially from the military sector. In the first half of 2022, the company delivered a total of 7 UAVs and achieved record sales of CZK 102.8 million ($4.4 million).

Features of the One 150 aircraft are its size, maximum take-off weight 150 kg, 15 hours endurance, 1800 km range, cruising speed 120 km/h, payload 30 kg and fully automatic take-off and landing.  The company focuses on civil and military aerospace applications, particularly in energy, border and coastal security, fire monitoring and search and rescue operations.

Primoco UAV announced in February that it would cease activities in the Russian market and sell its local subsidiary AO Primoco BPLA following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
