“…Quantum-Systems, innovative developer, designer, and producer of advanced eVTOL UAVs announced yesterday the formation of a facility in the U.S. to meet the growing demand for Quantum-Systems products among U.S. defense and security customers, effective January 1, 2022.
Quantum-Systems VTOL drones Vector and Scorpion are powered by Auterion, the company building the connected drone operating system. In early 2020, Quantum-Systems partnered with Auterion Government Solutions (Auterion GS) to bring Vector, a 2-in-1 vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) drone, into the U.S. defense and security markets. With the initial market entry a huge success, Quantum-Systems is expanding its operations to scale North America based production to meet increased demand within the U.S. government, including the military, defense and public security sectors, such as Special Operations Forces (SOF), as well as Customs and Border Protection (CBP).
“The Auterion team has done a fantastic job of taking our lineup to market in North America,” said Florian Seibel, CEO and co-founder of Quantum-Systems. “Moving to the U.S. is a logical next step for Quantum-Systems to grow as a global sUAS provider, attracting the best talent and moving closer to our biggest customers. Our focus in the first months will be to ramp up our U.S. production capabilities to be able to serve our customers directly from California.”
As part of the expansion, David Sharpin will join Quantum-Systems as the CEO of their new U.S. subsidiary. Over the past 18 months, Sharpin has represented Auterion in the United States, being the primary contact for all U.S. government procurement programs evaluating the Quantum-Systems drones equipped with the Auterion operating system…”
