From Creamer Media in Johannesburg, this is the Real Economy Report. Braddick Defense Systems is developing a high-speed, long-range, mobile deployment unmanned aerial vehicle for surveillance of an attack-mission augmentation in collaboration with Marenco Engineering Technologies Africa. Anine Vermeulen has the story. Anine Vermeulen: Braddick Defense Systems CEO Adam McCallum says that the lock-wing drone was originally going to be a quadracopter; however, while conducting research for the project, Braddick contacted Marenco Engineering, as they are experts in this field, and the idea of a lock-wing drone came to fruition.
