ASW’s Exciting CUAV 2022 Announcements: Acquisition, The KAYAKU Spirit, Parachute System, and Rebranding!

CUAV Expo 2022 brought a lot of exciting news to the world of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), especially for Aero Systems West (ASW). The company, known for its high-quality and customizable UAVs, made headlines at the event for various reasons. One of the most significant announcements was its acquisition by Nippon Kayaku, a Japanese industrial explosives manufacturer with over a century of experience. With this acquisition, ASW is expected to expand its operations and provide even more advanced UAV technology to its customers.



Nippon Kayaku, founded in 1916, is the first industrial explosives manufacturer in Japan. The company has evolved over the years, and today it is a diversified chemical company with a wide range of products and services, including pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, and specialty chemicals. Nippon Kayaku’s acquisition of ASW is a significant milestone for the company, as it marks its entry into the UAV market.



One of the core values of the Nippon Kayaku Group is the KAYAKU spirit, which is defined as “continuously providing society with the best products through ceaseless progress and the combined forces of our consciences.” This spirit is deeply ingrained in the company’s culture and is reflected in its commitment to innovation and quality.



ASW’s new parent company brings with it a wealth of experience, expertise, and resources, which will undoubtedly help ASW in developing even more advanced and sophisticated UAVs. With Nippon Kayaku’s support, ASW is expected to increase its production capacity, develop new products, and expand its global reach.



Another major announcement at the CUAV Expo was the launch of ASW’s PARASAFE parachute system for UAVs. This innovative safety system is designed to minimize damage to the UAV and ensure the safety of people on the ground in case of an emergency. The system deploys quickly and efficiently, allowing the UAV to safely return to the ground without causing any harm.



The PARASAFE system is an example of ASW’s commitment to safety and innovation. It is a unique solution that addresses a critical need in the UAV industry and is expected to be a game-changer in the market. With the launch of this system, ASW has further cemented its position as a leader in the UAV industry.



The CUAV Expo also saw the launch of ASW’s new branding. The rebranding is part of the company’s efforts to position itself as a leader in the UAV industry and better reflect its values and vision. The new branding includes a new logo, color scheme, and website design. The website has been revamped to make it more user-friendly and informative, providing customers with all the information they need about ASW’s products and services.



The rebranding is an exciting development for ASW, as it reflects the company’s growth and evolution. It is also a sign of the company’s commitment to providing the best possible experience for its customers. With its new branding, ASW is expected to continue to be a leading player in the UAV industry and attract even more customers.



In conclusion, the CUAV Expo 2022 was an exciting event for ASW, with several significant announcements made. The company’s acquisition by Nippon Kayaku is a game-changer in the UAV industry, providing ASW with access to new resources and expertise. The launch of the PARASAFE system further demonstrates ASW’s commitment to safety and innovation, while the rebranding reflects the company’s growth and evolution. With these developments, ASW is poised to continue to be a leader in the UAV industry and provide its customers with the best possible products and services.
