Patria and Insta have successfully completed the first Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) test flights of the Multi Purpose Networking Data Link (MPNDL). Carried out in connection with the Cassidian-led Agile UAV NCE test flight campaign, the tests were the first time MPNDL has flown on-board an unmanned system.

Successful testing of MPNDL in an actual UAS scenario was yet another major milestone in the long-term development of a networking Command and Control data link designed to fulfill UAS communication related capability gaps originally identified in the extensive Technology Study carried out for the European Defence Agency EDA during 2006.
