Berlin/Hamburg — Quan­­tum-Systems, the leading deve­lo­per of unman­ned aerial systems (UAS), raises second round of finan­cing in 2022. In addi­tion to exis­ting inves­tor Bayern Kapi­tal, new inves­tors Peter Thiel, Project A and Sanno Capi­tal also parti­ci­pa­ted in the funding. Quan­­tum-Systems relied on the exper­tise and compe­tence of the YPOG team around Adrian Haase and Benja­min Ullrich for this finan­cing round, as it did in the first half of 2022, in the previous $30 million Series A finan­cing round.

Quan­­tum-Systems is a leader in UAS deve­lo­p­ment. The electric verti­cal take­off and landing (eVTOL) systems offer indus­­try-leading flight endu­rance, opera­tio­nal ease of use and relia­bi­lity. The versa­tile UAS are used for secu­rity, defense, huma­ni­ta­rian and geos­pa­tial missi­ons in both the public and private sectors.

The new capi­tal will be spent on R&D invest­ments that drive the advan­ce­ment of arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence, auto­nomy, edge compu­ting and robo­tics. The funding will also enable Quan­tum Systems to meet the growing demand for advan­ced UAS in the defense, agri­cul­ture, mining, construc­tion and energy sectors. The UAS can be used for a variety of use cases, such as search and rescue missi­ons after natu­ral disas­ters, auto­ma­ted rail inspec­tions after severe weather, and aerial data collec­tion of large-scale construc­tion projects.
