"Our capabilities stand on the thorough approach we take to identifying and meeting customer training requirements, as well as the experience of our talented UAS training staff, many of whom are former military UAS operators themselves," said AAI Logistics and Technical Services Senior Vice President and General Manager Diane Giuliani.
"That kind of experience goes well beyond the ABCs of product operation and maintenance. We help trainees learn to make the most of UAS assets to support mission success."
Sweden Armed Forces Technical School maintenance training provider certification indicates that the company's training for the Shadow Tactical Unmanned Aircraft System has been verified to conform with Swedish Rules of Military Aviation, RML-V-7F.
RML-V-7F establishes strict requirements of theoretical and practical training.
Sweden's armed forces are operating the Shadow UAS, which is made by AAI Unmanned Aircraft Systems. The aircraft, depending on model, has a wingspan of about 14 feet and is powered by a rotary engine. It carries intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance sensor payloads.
AAI Logistics and Technical Services said it is conducting a second round of training for Swedish maintainers and operators.
AAI is the first company to receive the training certification in Sweden for unmanned aerial vehicles.
