XTEK receives $3.4 million order for AeroVironment drone sustainment


Ballistics and technology company XTEK has received an order worth $3.4 million from the Department of Defence to supply spare parts in support of the Small Unmanned Aerial Systems (SUAS) fleet. 

In a short statement to the ASX on Wednesday, XTEK Group CEO Scott Basham said the company was continuing to provide high-end sustainment support services “under the existing multi-year support contract” with the department for their in-service fleet of AeroVironment SUAS.  

“This latest spare parts order ensures that our team of engineers, technicians, and logistics support specialists will have all of the specialist components at hand to be able to continue to support this important SUAS capability,” said Basham.

XTEK supplies defence, law enforcement and other sectors, and develops its own products in composites and drone software.

It operates as two divisions – ballistic and technology – with the drone order handled by the technology division.

The latter supplies AeroVironment’s Wasp (SUAS), Puma (SUAS+), and SwitchBlade (loitering munitions) systems across Oceania.
