ANKARA -- Baykar Defense has decided to donate unmanned air vehicles (UAVs) to Ukraine. A private group has raised $20 million to purchase Bayraktar TB2 UAVs from this Turkish defense firm. Baykar Defense decided to donate the three UAVs instead.

The Bayraktar TB2 UAVs are already operation with the Ukrainian military. These UAVs have gathered intelligence for Ukrainian forces, as well as conducted air strikes on ground targets.

Russia has objected to the sale of UAVs to Ukraine by the Turkish company. Turkish officials say that Baykar is a private company.

OSLO -- Teledyne FLIR Defense, part of Teledyne Technologies Inc. has entered into a framework agreement worth up to NOK 475 million (approximately $48 million) with the Norwegian Defence Materiel Agency to deliver advanced Black Hornet nano unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). The agreement is valid for four years but can be extended a year at a time for up to three additional years.

While Norway received its first Black Hornet in 2015, this agreement represents the country's largest commitment to date. With these new orders, Norway will become one of the largest users of Teledyne FLIR's Black Hornet Personal Reconnaissance System. The Black Hornet weighs just 33 grams (less than 0.1 pounds) and measures 168 millimeters (less than seven inches). Well suited for operations in highly contested and GPS-denied environments, nearly silent, and with a flight time up to 25 minutes, the pocket-sized UAV transmits live visible and thermal video to the operator. Teledyne FLIR Defense has delivered more than 12,000 Black Hornets to defense and security forces worldwide.

"I would like to thank the Norwegian Government and Minister of Defence, Bjorn Arild Gram, for continued support of the Black Hornet, which is also designed and manufactured in Norway," said Robert Mehrabian, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Teledyne Technologies. "With this new agreement, nations cooperating with Norway may also procure the Black Hornet. As the world's leading nano UAV system, Black Hornet delivers covert situational awareness to military units in combat operations - a crucial advantage at a time when European and allied countries confront new threats on the Continent and beyond."

"Our Black Hornet nano UAV operates day or night and even in the most challenging GPS-denied environments, including indoors," said Edwin Roks, Executive Vice President and Segment President Teledyne Digital Imaging. "With a range of two kilometers, the Black Hornet can fly at speeds exceeding six meters per second and communicates with an encrypted digital datalink for secure and reliable communications from tight spaces to beyond-line-of-sight applications."
