High Eye has emerged victorious in an international open tender issued by the Ministry of Defence Netherlands, marking a significant milestone in the company’s journey of innovation and growth, the company said in a press release.


This prestigious tender victory signifies not only a tremendous achievement by High Eye but also a testament to the quality and capability of the Airboxer. As part of a comprehensive program spanning more than two years, High Eye’s team will diligently work to integrate the Airboxer seamlessly into all aspects of the Netherlands Ministry of Defence’s operations, both in Europe and abroad.

The comprehensive program encompasses the integration of the Airboxer VTOL UAV along with its ground control system, training modules, maintenance packages, operational training, and cutting-edge EO/IR camera payloads. The first complete Airboxer System will be delivered this year, marking the beginning of an exciting partnership with the Dutch Ministry of Defence.



In response to this momentous achievement, CEO, Joost de Ruiter expressed his sentiments, stating:

“We are pleased to win this tender and honoured to integrate our Airboxer in the operations of the Netherlands MOD. This partnership signifies not only a significant milestone for High Eye but also a testament to our commitment for years to deliver top-notch UAV solutions for defence and security applications.”

According to High Eye, the Airboxer is a long range unmanned helicopter with a three-blade single rotor. Because of its size, weight and capabilities, it creates a class on its own and brings industrial reliability into the UAV market in an unprecedented small size. High Eye believes its product should be safe to operate under nearly all circumstances and conditions, throughout the year. The Airboxer has been developed over a period of more than 6 years and has been tested under the most extreme conditions on several continents. It has been proven to deliver reliability and capability at any time, wherever it is needed.
