The enterprise’s legal predecessor, HM Electronics, Logistical and Property Management Limited Company was founded on 1 January 1993 by the Minister of Defence at the base of the Electronics Directorate of the Hungarian Defence Forces, established in 1981. At the time of its foundation its main activity was the design of radio reconnaissance and jamming systems made of basic components produced by Hungarian industrial companies, development of special hardware and software elements, and the provision of training, education and expert advice relating to the delivery of the system.

In 1995 the Electronics and the Logistical Directorate were formed as two independent business divisions. As owner, the Ministry of Defence imposed increasing demands on HM EI Rt., especially in terms of property and asset management, operation and services. In 1997 another business unit, the Property Operation Directorate, was founded to attend to tasks that needed to be addressed as a result of these demands. The Security and Property Protection Directorate was established in 2003 in response to experience and results obtained while tackling the tasks, integrated into various organizational units, resulting from the guarding and the protection of the managed properties. The above task categories, even though they have been renamed and assigned to different organizational units, are still part of the Company's profile.

Thanks to its efforts, HM EI Zrt. was bestowed the title "NATO Certified Supplier" and as a result, it was the first among Hungarian companies to sign a NATO "Basic Ordering Agreement".

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

HM EI Zrt. has been engaged in research and development activities in the subject of developing unmanned drones since 2007. The development project was completed in three phases, producing a complex system by the year of 2012, which has the following major components:
• Aerial vehicle equipped with an on-board automated control system, and
• A terrestrial operator centre that is suitable for controlling the aerial vehicle, performing missions, and can be transported in a container.

The developed aerial vehicles can be classified into two groups according to their area of application and their role, which are:
1. Target drones and reconnaissance aerial vehicles designed for military use
2. Reconnaissance aerial vehicles designed for civilian use

As a result of the development project, HM EI Zrt. produced prototypes of three vehicle types:
METEOR 3MA target drone  
IKRAN reconnaissance aircraft  
BORA reconnaissance aircraft (under development)

MRVP - Mobile Flight Control Post

Thanks to the efforts focusing on the development of a complex system a towable mobile terrestrial operator centre (Mobile Flight Control Post - MRVP) has been developed, which is suitable for:

• The transportation of aerial vehicles integrated into container based transport units
• Deployment on a short notice at the place of application as an operator centre (1 hour)
• Setting up and using flight control and video operator workstations

ASR-10/40M Containerized Water Treatment, Water Storage and Water Supply Equipment

HM EI Zrt. has been engaged in research and development activities related to the development of water treatment technologies.

The development project was implemented as two sub-projects:
1. Production of an absorbing agent suitable for dearsenification
2. Production of water treatment equipment implemented by integrating the developed absorbing agent

As a result of the development activities in the two sub-projects a containerized dearsenifying drinking water treatment unit, with an output of 8-12 m3/h, was manufactured, which is capable of reducing the iron, manganese, arsenic and hydrogen sulphide content of the treated water below the limit of 10μgr/l as provided for by the European Union, and to reduce the concentration of organic materials, heavy metals and phosphates. Building the containerized system of modularized units results in water treatment capacities that are suitable for serving increased performance requirements, which can be achieved by multiplying the number or the size of the containers and the units inside them.
