The deal will see EDGE owning 80% of MARS Robotics, enabling the highly skilled and experienced engineering team to work closely with EDGE on a number of exciting projects. MARS Robotics will work closely within EDGE’s Advanced Concepts, which focuses on the rapid design, development, and deployment of advanced and innovative technologies.
Announced at Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace Exhibition (LIMA 2023), where EDGE is displaying a broad array of autonomous solutions and smart weapons, the acquisition will create greater opportunities for EDGE to expand its offerings and support its customers globally.
“EDGE’s acquisition of MARS Robotics represents a solid strategic investment that aligns with our ongoing ambitions in the autonomous systems domain. As we rapidly grow and develop the solutions that play a critical role in a secure future, so too must our engineering and innovation capabilities. Acquiring a company with world-class expertise in developing high performance UAS is a logical step for us as we continue to execute our product development roadmap, bringing next-generation solutions to market with speed, cost-effectiveness, and efficiency. We are very excited about this great tie up and always believed in MARS Robotics and the strong technological capabilities there,” said Mansour AlMulla, Managing Director & CEO of EDGE.
