Prioria Robotics receives $4.5 million contract from U.S. Army Rapid Equipping Force

Prioria Robotics, Inc., developers of the tactical Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems has been awarded several contracts totaling $4.5 million by the U.S. Army Rapid Equipping Force.

This multi-system order will position the Maveric Unmanned Aircraft System® as a next generation UAS capability to support the warfighter. As part of this recent contract, Maveric UAS® successfully completed certification by the Army Test and Evaluation Command.

The U.S. Army has shifted its focus to smaller, more rapidly deployable units with the proper equipment to support their missions. Maveric UAS® is a single-person operable and portable aircraft, usable in the most rugged conditions and equipped with the largest number of payload options of any hand-launched UAS, including day, night, Short Wave Infrared, and other custom payloads utilizing Prioria’s modular payload system. Maveric UAS® provides next generation capability at a great value with a low cost of ownership.

“It is our goal to support the warfighter. Having ATEC certifications means that we have a safe and reliable system,” said Bryan da Frota, chief executive officer of Prioria Robotics, Inc. “We believe as the mission changes and evolves, Maveric UAS® will become an instrumental component to meeting these missions.”
