Altavian Awarded Contract for Development of New Military Drone Prototype

UF startup Altavian, a U.S.-based Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) engineering and manufacturing firm, announced the award of the Short Range Reconnaissance Prototype (SRR) contract as a part of the Army’s effort to field a next-generation drone weighing less than 5 pounds flown by a single operator.

This program is the first of several Army multi-year efforts to refresh the UAS technology portfolio to better-protect our soldiers through superior situational awareness capabilities. The SRR program is intended to augment the existing fleet of small UAS currently deployed by the Army in short range and urban environments. This endeavor is being spearheaded by the Defense Innovation Unit (DIU), working with PEO Aviation, to speed prototype deployment and guide program development.
