Nordic Unmanned receives first order from Lockheed Martin UK

Nordic Unmanned has received an order worth EUR 1.5 million from Lockheed Martin UK Ltd. relating to Heimdal sensors and software. 

This is the first specific purchase order under the framework contract announced on December 16. The framework contract covers a period of 10 years, with revenue effect expected to exceed EUR 5 million in 2023.

The revenue effect of the first purchase order is expected in Q1 2023.  

The framework contract covers the production and supply of Heimdal sensors, maintenance and modifications related to the sensor, and other related work on the Lockheed Martin Indago 4 drone. More general information will be given about the contract in the Q4 2022 report.

“We’re pleased that the framework contract is so quickly turned into a revenue-generating purchase order, a further confirmation of the attraction of the Heimdal sensor for small drones in the defence market and current time to market expectations,

Knut Roar Wiig, CEO Nordic Unmanned

The Heimdal sensor is a dual Electro-Optical/Infra-Red (EO/IR) sensor developed by Nordic Unmanned’s German subsidiary AirRobot.

The announcement of the framework contract and subsequent purchase order comes after Lockheed Martin UK Ltd. was awarded the Prime Contract for the TIQUILA drone program by the UK Ministry of Defence.
