Under the terms of the award, valued in excess of $1.1 million, Drone Aviation will supply multiple WASP Lite aerostat systems capable of enhancing and extending the modern networked battlefield supporting specialized waveform communications equipment and day/night ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance) payloads.
Deliveries under this award, as well as deliveries related to the $3.8 million WASP tactical aerostat contract awarded by a U.S. Government Prime contractor announced in January 2019, are expected to commence in the third quarter and continue through year-end 2019.
The WASP Lite system is a persistent aerial asset designed to be transportable in a series of ruggedized cases and is quickly deployable to fill capability gaps on the battlefield. WASP Lite can be deployed up to 1,000 ft. and supports a wide range of payloads including multiple communications waveforms, ISR and signal intelligence (SIGINT).
