During the visit of Major General Martin Herem and Brigadier General Veiko-Vello Palm recent unmanned aircraft system (UAS) industry developments, cooperation opportunities and possible exploitation of the systems by the Estonian Defence Forces were discussed.
Threod Systems CEO Villiko Nurmoja and CTO Kristjan Tiimus introduced Threod Systems company and products. As well as, recent developments and future plans.
One of the topics for the discussion was Threods’ KX-4 LE Titan multirotor. It is currently tested and evaluated by the Estonian National Defence College. As a result, the Titan UAS will be deployed to the Republic of Mali in West Africa, together with Estonian troops in spring 2019. The system will be used in the Operation Barkhane.

UAVs are the “eyes in the sky” for the soldiers, commanders and decision-makers. Previously, Estonian Defence Forces and Threod Systems cooperated in multiple joint events and military exercises like “Spring Storm” and “Hedgehog”. Furthermore, cooperation and support of the operations and exercises will continue”.
