Parrot has been chosen to equip the Swiss Armed Forces with micro-drones as part of the “Swiss Mini UAV Program” (Swiss MUAS) call for tender against major civilian UAV players. Parrot’s expertise in professional drones, the performance of its solutions dedicated to Defence and Security, and the high level of cyber security required by the Swiss armed forces were decisive assets in the final choice. The call for tender launched at the beginning of 2019 by armasuisse, the federal procurement agency responsible for the Swiss Armed Forces, is intended to get the right cost-effective training aids for the troops to become familiar with Mini UAV operations. The safety of people and military personnel, as well as knowledge of the terrain, can be significantly enhanced and easily deployed thanks to the high-performant, light and evolving drones developed by Parrot.
