Peter Thiel, Project A, and Sanno Capital invest in German Drone Robotics Leader Quantum-Systems

Germany, Munich, October 16th, 2022 – Quantum-Systems GmbH, an innovative developer, designer, and manufacturer of advanced unmanned aerial systems (UAS), today announced the closing of a financing round with new investors Peter Thiel, Project A, and Sanno Capital.

Founded in 2015, Quantum-Systems is at the forefront of UAS development. Its electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) systems boast industry-leading flight endurance, ease of operation, and reliability. Customers in the public and private sectors alike use Quantum-Systems’ versatile UAS for security, defence, humanitarian, and geospatial operations.

Customers can use Quantum’s UAS in a variety of use cases, including search and rescue operations after natural disasters, automated railway inspections after severe weather, and for aerial data intelligence on large-scale construction operations.

This injection of capital will accelerate the company’s R&D investment into artificial intelligence, autonomy, edge computing, and robotics, bringing a sophisticated software layer to Quantum-Systems’ advanced airframes. This round of funding also allows Quantum-Systems to more aggressively pursue sales to meet growing demand across Europe for sophisticated UAS, in sectors ranging from defence, to agriculture, to mining, to construction, to energy.


The future of UAS is in neither software nor hardware alone,
but in the intelligent synthesis of the two. With that understanding,
Quantum-Systems is a leap ahead of its competition.

American and Israeli companies have historically dominated
the drone market. We are excited to see Quantum-Systems
step up and provide a homegrown European solution
that doesn’t sacrifice tech quality.

Whether in agriculture, construction, or observation
for humanitarian operations and reconnaissance,
Quantum’s UAS cover an immense range of applications.
The company offers the innovation potential to
build the European champion in its field through
best-in-class sensor solutions and AI.

The next chapter in our growth is taking our first-class
hardware, which our customers love, and investing heavily
in the software to bring it to the next level. That includes
artificial intelligence, which will enhance our ability to
provide situational awareness to our operators; edge
computing, which facilitates real-time data processing
onboard our UAS; and new elements in our mission
planning software, which allows operators to orchestrate
complex operations with the click of a button.
