Vought Defense Systems to acquire Cyber Aerospace

  • 16-Mar-2010 05:20 EDT

Cyber Aerospace’s CyberScout can be optimally configured with different major components so that it can cost-effectively meet varied mission requirements.

Vought Defense Systems Corp. signed a contract to acquire 100% of the issued and outstanding stock of Cyber Aerospace LLC, a designer and manufacturer of unmanned aerial systems that provides services to law enforcement, military, and commercial operation globally. The acquisition fulfills Vought’s desire to acquire and develop unique aerial and surveillance UAVs for the U.S. and foreign militaries and the national security market. Cyber Aerospace manufactures the CyberScout, a small configurable and modifiable UAV aerial platform that combines the vertical takeoff and landing and hovering capabilities of a helicopter with the high-speed forward capabilities of a fixed-winged aircraft.
