DELTA - On the heels of a record production year, Analytic Systems Ware (1993) Ltd. (ASW) is pleased to announce its largest-ever order for a power system for AAI Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Shadow Tactical Unmanned Aircraft Systems (TUAS), generating more jobs for British Columbians.

Today's announcement will preserve existing jobs and immediately create two new positions to move the company's workforce to 76 employees.

This product agility as well as the reliability of Analytic Systems' product line provides the innovative technology companies need to complete the company's programs and provide solutions for all their UAS mission critical needs.

TUAS are in service with customers including the U.S. Army and Marine Corps. Analytic Systems recently purchased Aegis Manufacturing Operations Software which will assist as it is designed to improve efficiencies and quality by streamlining and controlling process planning and launch, process tracking and control, and quality and test management.

It will improve reliability, flexibility and traceability in the production of important projects like this.
