UBIQ Aerospace and Boeing Insitu Establish Visionary Partnership to Redefine Cold Climate Aircraft Technology

Trondheim, Oct 26 — UBIQ Aerospace, a pioneering leader in cold weather and ice protection technologies, is excited to announce a groundbreaking collaboration with Boeing/Insitu, a renowned uncrewed aircraft systems (UAS) provider within The Boeing Company. These two innovative companies will embark on a project aimed at shaping the next generation of uncrewed aircraft capable of operating in extreme climates, with a specific focus on addressing the defense requirements of Norway and its allies.

“This partnership marks a significant milestone for UBIQ,” stated Kim Lynge Sorensen, Chief Executive Officer at UBIQ Aerospace. “We are enthusiastic about contributing our expertise and solutions to augment Insitu’s well-established capabilities in advanced uncrewed aircraft development. Together, we share a compelling vision to redefine the future of aerospace technology.” 

Insitu, with a storied history of pioneering breakthroughs, such as the ScanEagle and Integrator UAS, continues to lead the way in aerospace innovation. Insitu’s prowess in advancing next-generation aircraft technologies aligns seamlessly with UBIQ Aerospace’s mission to develop cutting-edge solutions that meet the evolving needs of the industry.

 “Insitu builds the most proven and reliable NATO Class 1 Small UAS in the world,” explained Abigail Denburg, Vice President of Global Growth and Strategy at Insitu. “Our systems have flown aboard 28 classes of warship.  They support customers in 35 countries including one-third of NATO, as well as Ukraine.  Experience matters.  Interoperability with allies matters. But for our allies like Norway, none of that matters if the systems can’t withstand the elements along NATO’s northern flank. 

Our collaboration with UBIQ Aerospace is part of an ongoing initiative that will not only enable our uncrewed aircraft to operate routinely and reliably in the harsh conditions of the Arctic and High North, but also further develop and innovate a competitive national defense industry in Norway.”
