Quantum Systems, Europe’s leading innovator in dual-use drone-robotics offering state-of-the-art multi-sensor technology for both government and commercial clients, announces the successful completion of its EUR 63.6 million Series B funding round. This brings the total amount of funding for the Munich-based drone manufacturer to over EUR 100 million. Leading the investment are HV Capital and DTCP , followed by Project A, Thiel Capital, ScaleUp Fonds Bayern, Omnes Capital, and Airbus Ventures. This substantial infusion of capital underscores Quantum Systems’ dedication to boosting resilient infrastructure, through aerial intelligence.
Changing geopolitical landscape drives the need for technological autonomy
Conflicts, disasters, or dependencies on foreign suppliers around the globe have tremendously increased the need for robust systems that give commercial and governmental customers the decisive data advantage, either in the business world or on the battlefield.
“In the face of ever-evolving global challenges, Quantum Systems recognizes the need for a bottom-up flexible approach. This approach fosters innovation and adaptability, enabling Europe to sustain its democratic values while embracing disruptive technologies that drive progress,” says Florian Seibel, CEO, Quantum Systems.
Quantum Systems recently secured a significant contract with the German Armed Forces for Vector reconnaissance drones, strengthening European security. Partnering with Airbus Defence and Space, backed by the German Ministry of Defense, Quantum Systems advances tactical drones with AI and swarming technologies. The company continues to support Ukraine through multiple deliveries of Vector drones, driving innovations in AI capabilities, endurance, and further system architecture integrations to the battle management systems.
Fueled by a vision to lead in AI-powered drone-robotics globally, Quantum Systems’ strategy emphasizes a “family of systems” with deep integration, a unified software stack, and Drone Ports development to maintain a technological edge in autonomous aerial data capture.
“We are excited to back Quantum Systems’ vision for global leadership in AI-powered drone-robotics. The team has showcased their ability to sustain a technological advantage. We look forward to working with the team as they expand their product offering, ” says Christian Saller, General Partner, HV Capital.
Pioneering the path to global leadership in AI-powered aerial robotics
Quantum Systems’ unique advantage lies in its dual-use capability, addressing two distinct markets with common technology. Through the synthesis of hardware, software, and AI, Quantum Systems transforms business operations, enhancing efficiency across a diverse spectrum of verticals, from agriculture to mining, inspection, and construction. Quantum Systems also extends its expertise to democratic governments, where the need for aerial data-driven operations becomes paramount. The provision of aerial intelligence in real-time is not merely a strategic choice but a decisive edge, enabling market growth precisely where Quantum Systems stands uniquely positioned with its cutting-edge products and visionary roadmap.
“Recent geopolitical events have made it crystal clear that we as venture capital investors can no longer afford to ignore the complexities of defense technology, which includes dual-use concepts with multiple applications. That’s why we’re proud to continue to back Quantum Systems in becoming a major dual-use player that strengthens European and Western tech resilience, “says Uwe Horstmann, General Partner, Project A Ventures.
Quantum Systems is proud to welcome HV Capital, DTCP, and its other new investors, who boldly stepped forward to contribute to Quantum’s mission of creating a safer and more technologically resilient world. By embracing this challenge and investing in Quantum Systems, these new partners are actively contributing to the future of European and global security.
