Projections of the UAV market are growing as rapidly to figure out the newer applications. Keeping in view the past global trends, the sales in the coming two decades is expected to be whooping trillions of dollars from the UAV industry.
In 2007, MKU with its vision decided to be a global defense solutions provider and it also understood the significance of the UAV segment to propel its growth plans. After considerable deliberations, in the latter half of 2007, MKU took the strategic decision to penetrate the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) sector notwithstanding the presence of almost every large defense company in this field. With its far sighted vision coupled with Dynamism and ingenuity, MKU within a short span of barely 8-9 months successfully developed two products which can be compared as the best in the world standards.
"MKU had attained a prominent global position and is perhaps No. 1 in the Ballistic Protection market. We have now entered the fastest growing UAV market. With the launch of our 2 new solutions, TERP and Erasmus, we are geared to catch up with the upcoming industrial growth and would look forward to command a sizeable market share" said Mr. Anurag Gupta Jt. MD, MKU, at launch of TERP in February 2008 during DEFEXPO, INDIA.
The Tactical Reconnaissance Electrical Probe (TREP) is an all composite, backpack-able UAV System that requires no tools for assembly. It is ideally suited for frontline operations and provides enhanced Tactical Situational Awareness. The system is designed to play a key role in military, paramilitary and civilian deployments.
The ERASMUS UAVS is a high performance tactical / strategic UAVS designed for frontline operations. The system is transported in 2 ruggedized containers and requires 45 minutes for assembly or disassembly. The system is equipped with an Image Exploitation System which enables ERASMUS to track or target objects based on a visual image reference.
MKU shall be exhibiting at ILA, Berlin Airshow, from 27th May-1st June 2008 with their cutting edge UAV Solutions.
Apart from, UAVs MKU has recently ventured into development of high performance drones designed for various Air Defense Target Applications. The Drone offers several flight profiles including steep climbs and dives.
Further, for Eurosatory-2008, Paris, MKU is aiming to unveil its entire gamut of UAVS solutions and disclose its future plans.
