German UAV manufacturer joins Diia City for drone production in Ukraine

Quantum Systems, a prominent German drone manufacturer, has recently become a resident of Diia City portal, a move that is set to establish a Research and Development (R&D) center and drone production facilities in Ukraine, the Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine announced on 8 December.

“Diia.City is becoming a defense-tech hub,” the announcement read.

Diia City is a special legal and tax zone for IT and tech companies that create favorable conditions for developers.

For the past eight years, Quantum Systems has been engaged in the design, development, and production of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). In 2022, the German government commenced the supply of drones from Quantum Systems to Ukraine.

This year, Quantum Systems responded to the Ukrainian government’s call to establish production facilities in the country by founding a Service, Support, Training, and Logistics Center in Ukraine. This initiative is seen as a strategic response to the growing demand for advanced UAV technology for use on the frontline.

The Ministry of Digital Transformation believes that the residency in Diia City will significantly aid Quantum Systems in creating a robust drone production infrastructure and launching an R&D center in Ukraine. The government has recently expanded the list of companies eligible to join Diia City. Now, companies focused on drone manufacturing, technical maintenance, and training services for UAV operations are eligible to become residents of this specialized tax space.

This partnership is expected to not only enhance Ukraine’s technological capabilities but also foster innovation in the rapidly evolving field of drone technology.
