Taiwan MND pursues multirotor UAV developments
22 August 2019

The Taiwanese Ministry of National Defense Armaments Bureau's (MND AB's) Materiel Production Center (MPC) has announced that it is developing a new family of indigenous surveillance and weaponised multirotor unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to address potential tactical requirements by the Republic of China Army (RoCA).

Three new multirotor UAV prototypes - the UAV Forward Observation System, the UAV Patrolling System, and the Multi-Purpose Drone System - under development by the MPC's 202nd and 205th Arsenals, were exhibited at the 2019 Taipei Aerospace & Defense Technology Exhibition (TADTE).

The UAV Forward Observation System is being trialled by the Taipei-based 202nd Arsenal as an organic airborne surveillance and targeting capability for the next-generation 88 Cloud Leopard II M2 Mortar Carrier being evaluated for the RoCA.
