Christoph Weber, Head of ESG DEFENCE + PUBLIC SECURITY at ESG Elektroniksystem- und Logistik-GmbH and Wolfgang Brand, Managing Director at EMT Ingenieurgesellschaft Dipl. Ing. Hartmut Euer mbH have signed a Memorandum of Understanding on an enhanced collaboration between the two companies in the tactical UAS field.
The collaboration aims to combine the complementary portfolios and capacities of EMT and ESG as concrete projects that will showcase the key abilities of a national systems house for tactical UAS. The implementation of goal-oriented synergies will enable the needs of the German Federal Armed Forces and other customers to be met with greater efficiency and effectiveness across the board, from design to integration through to product support of TUAS and their mission and ground control systems.

Wolfgang Brand, EMT: "I am convinced that this collaboration as equal partners will not only benefit customer focus and productivity in both our companies, but also be of significant advantage to our key customer the German Federal Armed Forces. We will ensure this by harnessing the synergy potential of skills and capacities from our respective organisations."
