The SSBV Aerospace and Technology Group and ATASS Advanced Tactical Airborne Systems and Services announced the signing of a cooperation agreement related to the provision of products, solutions and services for manned and unmanned aerial delivery systems.

One of the main objectives of the cooperation is to implement products and solutions that integrate and provide high compatibility and commonality between manned and unmanned systems which make use of steerable parachutes.

For this purpose, the manned systems (HAHO/HALO parachute systems, CCT - equipment, navigation systems) from ATASS and the unmanned systems (Precision Airdrop Systems, Tactical Resupply, Mission Planning, Communication) from SSBV provide a strong basis for a full European-based approach to provide common and integrated aerial delivery solutions.

"We are pleased and excited about the cooperation with ATASS. It opens up new opportunities for a wider range of systems and solutions based on our ACRIDS precision airdrop technology", said Mr Pieter van Duijn, CEO of the Dutch-based SSBV Aerospace and Technology Group.

"With this cooperation we have made the next step towards increasing and enhancing our Europeanbased technology and gained the means to evolve into one of the most successful full service system integrators in the field of military parachuting today", stated Mr Rainer Kandler, a Managing Director of German-based ATASS Advanced Tactical Airborne Systems and Services GmbH.

The cooperation, which commenced at the end of 2013, has already resulted in joint technical, as well as business development activities and a stronger positioning in the market.
