MCL showcases latest defence innovations at Abbey Wood

01 August 2019

At this year’s Inspiring Innovation event at MOD Abbey Wood, MCL was proud to be showcasing the latest defence technology to a record number of Defence Equipment & Support (DE&S) staff.

Hosted in the four neighbourhood atriums at MOD Abbey Wood, the event aims to promote innovation and networking across the UK defence sector and is attended by UK defence primes, small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and DE&S project teams.

Claire King, Sales and Marketing Director at MCL said, “This year’s Inspiring Innovation was a real celebration of the collaborative nature of our industry and how it is embracing change. Supplying innovative and bespoke solutions to the military is at the heart of everything we do at MCL, so we were proud to be showcasing the Aeryon SkyRanger at the event as well as Invisio Systems and Counter-UAS solutions.”

The Aeryon SkyRanger builds upon the leading capabilities of the SCOUT, providing increased flight time, dual EO/IR payload, HD video and extended flight range. Using a touchscreen flight control interface and proven autonomous flight control software ensures reliable flight performance in harsh and dynamic environments.

Claire King concludes, “This year was the busiest Inspiring Innovation event yet, and we were delighted with the number of visitors drawn to the MCL stand to discuss how the technology can help provide a critical advantage in challenging environments.”
