From Alpha Unmanned Systems we want to share with you all the latest news that have arisen during the last few weeks after the publication in several media of the recent delivery of one of our gasoline powered helicopter drones as a gift from the Minister of Agriculture of Israel, Uri Ariel, to the Russian Prime Minister, Dmitri Medvedev.

In June 2015 AUS sold two Sniper model helicopter UAVs to the Israeli Agricultural Research Organization, Volcani Center. Both helicopter UAVs were sold directly from our factory in Madrid. These two helicopter UAVs were the most basic version of helicopters that AUS manufactures and did not include any component or equipment for the analysis of images, infrared cameras or additions of similar nature. In addition, the sale and export of both helicopter UAVs was carried out in compliance with the strictest legal and commercial regulations required in Spain.

For AUS, having Israel’s Agricultural Research Organization, the Volcani Center, one of the most advanced agricultural research centers in the world, as a client is a source of great pride and satisfaction and demonstrates that its Sniper helicopter drone model is an extremely versatile and competitive professional grade UAV platform which offers a great variety of uses.
