“We’ve been shipping spirits since 2020, and our customers around the world have come to appreciate the robust versatility it offers,” said Paul Fermo, Vice President of Business Development. “We are delighted that government and municipal customers can now get the systems they need with just a few mouse clicks.”
The DIU Blue UAS program was created to provide a comprehensive verification process for certain unmanned aerial systems. By eliminating duplicate approval processes across various branches of government and defense agencies, operators and manufacturers can quickly get systems into the field where they are needed.
“Government agencies cannot choose when and where they fly,” said Peter Fuchs, CEO. “The coaxial configuration of the Spirit provides the compact, high-performance, all-weather capability needed for these critical applications. Its modular design allows operators to not only configure it exactly as needed for the mission at hand, but also easily adapt new sensors as they become available.”
The company currently has spirits available for immediate delivery, and delivery positions are being accepted for additional units slated for shipment beginning in August.
