UAE-based defence specialists, GRADEONE, expanded its partnership with US-based advanced unmanned systems developers, UAVOS, to create a joint research and development, production centre for autonomous solutions and weapon systems.

GRADEONE, an EDGE company, said in a statement that the centre will initially focus on the development of laser-based counter UAV solutions and high-speed aerial targets for the region.

UAVOS Inc., a developer and manufacturer of advanced unmanned systems, and GradeOne Group, a part of the EDGE the UAE’s world’s leading advanced technology groups, started a major new chapter in their partnerships when Vadim Tarasov, Board Chair of UAVOS, and Khalifa AI Ali, Managing Director at GradeOne Group, agreed to create a unique, strategic relationship between the two companies. The new agreement provides a tactical framework for current and future cooperation that leverages the resources, talent, and ideas of both companies to produce innovative solutions for the industry of autonomous systems as part of the joint R&D Laboratory.


In a first of its kind, the UAE company Bayanat will start producing high-altitude UAV, or what is known as the Pseudo Satellite-like UAV, which runs on solar energy, in cooperation with the American company UAVOS, which specializes in unmanned vehicles.

Eszter Kovács, Founder of, spoke with Vadim Tarasov, Chair of the Board at UAVOS INC. & Partner at Advanced Autonomous Solutions Fund, about investor's perspective on the status of UAV industry, cutting-edge technologies, hot areas, the regulatory aspect, and social acceptance of drones.


It’s not about being able to fly from point A to point B without human intervention…it’s about consistency and fault tolerance.
UAVOS has a vast experience of converting manned aircraft into unmanned platforms of both helicopter and Fixed Wing types. We see conversion program opportunities as an answer to a global need in the UAV delivery market for the high lift capacity platforms which meet requirements of reducing emissions, low prices of shipping, creating a safer system for delivery, and delivering rapidly in out-of-the-way locations. 


•    The urban air mobility market is protected to grow from USD 5,3 billion in 2018 to USD 15,2 billion by 2030. 
•    The growing use of UAVs in various civil & commercial applications due to their superior endurance, low operating costs, and enhanced payload capabilities has resulted in their increased production, which is the major factor driving the growth of the urban air mobility market. 


According to UAV market research agencies, the target drones market is estimated at USD 4.4 billion in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 6.3 billion by 2025. Increasing R&D investment and better funding for military training programs are key factors driving the growth of the target drones market.
