Ukraine's situation is not good with all these vague development announcements. They need to establish core capabilities now before they introduce niche ones, and these announcements don't do them any good.
If they're state sponsored, that's going to be a waste of money when the government struggles to incorporate core items into the budget.
If they're not state sponsored, then they're either hoping for a contract that probably won't come, or some contract will come, just to prevent people from being unemployed, and then that's more money down the drain.
Ukraine needs a national defense company that will provide an umbrella for all these small engineering groups. It's good manpower, after all. And keep that structure until the situation stabilizes. After that, privatize and expand.
Also, 25 engineers working right now on a drone system? Seems like an awfully small team that will find it very hard to put out a working product unless each has multiple areas of expertise.
