Vanguard Defense Industries is pleased to announce that they have received a multi-million contract from a global leader in the oil and gas exploration and production industry.  This contract will provide “several” ShadowHawk® UAS units to the client to conduct anti-piracy operations off of east Africa as well as technical advisors in the region.  According to Michael Buscher, CEO of Vanguard, “The ability of the ShadowHawk to reliably conduct land as well as sea based intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance operations will be critical to stemming the potential of piracy activities against our client.  This surveillance tool will mitigate threats by providing security personnel with unprecedented early warning capabilities.”
