Perth-based Orbital UAV has released its results for FY20, which outlined a strong showing in the year leading up to 30 June 2020 despite the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.

Even in the face of a global downturn in manufacturing, the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) market has continued to grow – with Orbital at the heart of Australian sovereign capability in the space. 

Since the outbreak, the company has signed international supply agreements with Northrop Grumman as well as an undisclosed Singaporean customer.

In documents provided together with the FY20 results, the company has also released revenue guidance for financial year 2021 of between $40 million and $50 million.

Backed by 30 years of experience in the engine design space, Orbital is now the primary engine supplier to Boeing subsidiary Insitu – powering its entire fleet of tactical UAVs. 

A closely-integrated international supply chain network and a patented heavy-fuel injection system has enabled the company to grow rapidly over the course of a few years, expanding into UAV-adjacent areas such as real-time propulsion system diagnostics.
