They won the top 2 sales contract award for Category E, the Outstanding Infiltration Award and for the first time in the 4 years they have competed (since 2013), they have finally won the Overall Championship Prize for Category E!

This award-winning concept featured a novel mothership-surrogate UAV concept where a small and stealthy UAV is deployed mid flight from a flying mothership, and was demonstrated live to the Guest-of-Honour Mr Ong Ye Kung during the Prize Ceremony.
