General Dynamics, Elbit Systems join UAS forces

  • 17-Jul-2009 01:53 EDT
General Dynamics Armament and Technical Products and Elbit Systems of America LLC formed a new company, UAS Dynamics LLC, to provide unmanned aerial systems (UAS) to the U.S. Department of Defense and other potential U.S. government customers through programs such as the U.S. Marine Corps’ Small Tactical Unmanned Aircraft System (STUAS)/Tier 2 program. The solutions that UAS Dynamics will offer are based on Elbit Systems’ Hermes and Skylark designs, which have accumulated more than 150,000 operational flight hours to date. UAS Dynamics will adapt those designs to incorporate new technologies that use U.S. engineering, technology, manufacturing, and logistics resources to rapidly field and satisfy evolving U.S. requirements. The joint venture is equally owned by General Dynamics and Elbit Systems of America and will be located in Fort Mill, SC.
