Lithuanian Economy and Innovation Minister Ausrine Armonaite on Thursday is presenting the government’s plans to beef up the country’s defense industry to the Swiss defense industry startup Unmanned Defense Systems (UDS).
At their meeting, Armonaite and the UDS founders will discuss the prospects for manufacturing the company’s unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in Lithuania, the Economy and Innovation Ministry has said in a press release.
“The famous Catfish Target drone developed by UDS has been successfully used in battles in Ukraine, including the fight for the legendary Snake Island, and has received positive feedback from the Ukrainian Armed Forces,” it said.
The startup also produces other drones, including a reconnaissance UAV and a mapping UAV for civilian use.
