Additional ADF purchase order
In July, XTEK received another purchase order from the Australian Defence Force (ADF) for the supply of additional AeroVironment WASP AE Small Unmanned Aerial Systems (SUAS).
The order, which is worth around A$2.8 million, is in addition to XTEK's ongoing SUAS supply contract to the ADF and represents XTEK’s strong and continued relationship with the ADF.
Delivery of the new purchase order is anticipated in FY2021.
XTEK managing director Philippe Odouard said at the time the order represented XTEK’s strong and continued relationship with the ADF.
He said: “The supply and maintenance of SUAS remains an ongoing focus for XTEK.
“Our SUAS business underpins our increasing revenue, with recurring attributes.
“In addition, our facility in Canberra is in full operation providing critical repair and maintenance services to support the ADF’s growing SUAS fleet.
