Pipistrel teams with UAS experts C-astra to develop NUUVA
Thursday, 11 February 2021
Bringing C-astra onboard will help Pipistrel develop its UAS for the fast-growing Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance - C4ISR - market.

Following promising market response after the initial launch of the NUUVA products family last September 2020, Pipistrel is relaunching the NUUVA V20 based on initial customer feedback and needs.

The NUUVA V20 now has capability that goes beyond delivery of cargo such as spare parts, valuable items and medical supplies, by adding ISR functionality with a diverse array of payloads, sensors and data link options for achieving superior situational awareness and C4I systems integration. First deliveries of NUUVA V20, furnished for VLOS as well as BVLOS operations, to launch customers will begin early in 2022.

Pipistrel says it is excited to partner with near neighbours C-astral Aerospace, whose UAS integration and R&D experience will enrich the product with proven and class-leading C4 solutions intuitive ground station elements and support suites.

Boštjan Bremec, C-astral Aerospace CTO says: "The global unmanned systems space is undergoing a not so quiet evolution, with pioneering companies such as Pipistrel and C-astral Aerospace joining forces to field integrated innovative unmanned systems that will work for our customers and their “customers” down the goods, materials and information supply chains. C-astral Aerospace is excited to work with Pipistrel on the advanced NUUVA V20 family of unmanned systems and widen this efficient platform customer base from the commercial to the C4ISR world. Our joint sales and support through Pipistrel, C-astral and Terra Drone networks will also provide a unique value global support and MRO structure for our new customers."

Ivo Boscarol, Pipistrel founder and CEO adds: "To make innovation a true success, you need to first set the trend, always respect market feedback and deliver unique, unprecedented solutions, which solve significant customer challenges. The relaunch of NUUVA V20, also thanks to C-astral Aerospace's competences, will create a superior product, fulfilling exactly what our customers have asked us to do. At the same time, I see that the NUUVA V20 can be a unique complement to the larger NUUVA V300, or be used as a standalone highly efficient and capable platform."
