Embention and Eanan Forge a Strategic Alliance for UAE’s Unmanned Aircraft Growth under a Joint Venture with an initial investment of USD 5 million.
This Joint Venture intends to manufacture a minimum of 3,000 Veronte Autopilots per annum.
In a signiﬁcant milestone for technological innovation and sustainable air mobility growth in the UAE, Embention, a global leader in avionics with the highest aircraft mobility standards, and EANAN, a leading Dubai-based Urban Air Mobility company, have signed an unprecedented MOU agreement within the framework of the Dubai Airshow 2023.
The signing ceremony, which took place on Thursday 16 November at the prestigious Dubai Airshow 2023, marked the ofﬁcial launch of the ﬁrst ﬂeet of unmanned aircraft entirely designed and produced in Dubai. This agreement covers the manufacturing of Embention’s Veronte Autopilot System in Dubai, the U.A.E, which is the core ﬂight control system for Eanan’s Aircraft is in compliance with aircraft certiﬁcation standards.
EANAN proudly presented its S-700, their largest unmanned aircraft with a payload capacity of up to 200 kg, setting a new standard in sustainable air mobility. These aircraft are part of a zero-emission ﬂeet, contributing to Dubai’s vision of becoming a sustainable and smart city. The ability to transport heavy loads between cities will boost logistics efﬁciency, while smaller unmanned aerial vehicles are expected to manage the delivery of packages to customers.
Embention, leaders in autopilots and components for UAV and UAM, contribute to the project with more than 16 years of experience in the autonomous vehicle control. With an outstanding track record in implementing advanced solutions for unmanned aerial systems, Embention has been instrumental in the development of technologies that guarantee the safety and efﬁciency of aircraft.
In the signing agreement Ulrich Weckx, CEO of EANAN AL SAMMA, highlighted the importance of the partnership with Embention. ”We are very pleased to partner with Embention in the ﬁeld of ﬂight control systems. We value safety above all else and believe that partnering with Embention will certainly allow us to achieve the safety objectives of our aircraft.”
“We are excited and grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with EANAN in the development of the ﬁrst ﬂeet of drones designed and produced in Dubai. This collaboration marks a signiﬁcant milestone for Embention’s expansion in the Middle East, delivering a ﬂight control system made in the UAE” said David Benavente, CEO of Embention.
The launch of the ﬁrst ﬂeet of locally designed and produced drones in Dubai marks an exciting chapter in aviation history and cements the city’s position as a global leader in advanced aerospace technologies. Embention and EANAN are poised to pioneer the sustainable air mobility revolution.
Leading UAE technology company in advanced air mobility (AAM), pioneers unmanned aircraft production in Dubai.
