Four companies to provide prototype small UAVs to determine how they work with future Army helicopter fleet
U.S. Army aviation experts are asking four unmanned aircraft designers to provide prototypes to determine how well UAVs will work with the Army's military helicopter fleet of the future, writes John Keller for Military & Aerospace Electronics.
The Intelligent Aerospace take:
July 30, 2019- Four UAV companies - Textron AAI Corp. in Hunt Valley, Md.; Arcturus UAV in Rohnert Park, Calif.; Martin UAV in Plano, Texas; and L3Harris in Ashburn, Va. -- will share the $99.5 million three-year contract, and will compete for separate orders over the three-year duration of the contract.
