Germany-based Sky Power GmbH has tied up with Zerosum Technologies, India to provide class leading UAV propulsion systems to the local growing and maturing market. The relationship between the two companies is expected to go beyond marketing the Sky Power products.
Karsten Schudt, managing director of Sky Power said, “India is a unique and growing market for UAVs due to recent legislative changes. We are looking to understand the local customer requirements and develop solutions specific to India.”
Zerosum Technologies is looking to set up a centre to provide engine testing facility locally and also to maintain spare parts in India so as to quickly meet the after sales requirements.
Jai Sharma, head of marketing of Zerosum, said “India requires technology infusion from the best in class companies to accelerate the process of being ‘Atma-nirbhar’ in the UAV domain. Sky Power GmbH is a world leader in two stroke and wankel propulsion systems and future engine development technology, which fits our company’s mission to meet the increase in demand for right products.” The company is looking to assemble the engines locally if there is adequate demand from the Indian customer.
