Luna UAV (all photos : Drei Söhne Technologies)
German company Drei Söhne Technologies (DST) yesterday appointed Sri Sentosa Sdn Bhd, a local company, to market its Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) equipment in the Sultanate.
DST supplies a number of small surveillance aircrafts that ranges from 1.5kg to 40kg in weight and can travel at speeds of 40km/h to 70km/h. The company's customer base includes various defence ministries from around the world.
The company's products include the Luna (photo above, right), Aladin, Fancopter and Museco.
DST's partnership with the local company was fuelled by the mission of Brunei Darussalam's Ministry of Defence to obtain state-of-the-art equipment and to expand its equipment portfolio.
Through the collaboration of the two companies, the transition of going high-tech would be made much easier for the Brunei Government. Other departments will also be able to utilise the UAV equipment to combat various forms of threats including illegal logging and border patrol.
