The U.S. Department of Defense awarded CenTauri Solutions LLC a contract to conduct a demonstration of the operational feasibility and military effectiveness of integrating an advanced, lightweight, high-definition electro-optical sensor with an unintentional electromagnetic emissions sensor system on an autonomous, vertical takeoff and landing UAV. The project, known as Yellow Jacket, is sponsored by the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory and has a total contract value of $11.7 million. The Yellow Jacket solution consists of a helicopter-based UAV that can take off from small patches of ground anywhere in the world and both fly and land fully autonomously. Integrated into the UAV are two sensor systems designed to identify potential threats of improvised explosive devices (IEDs). They consist of a high-definition electro-optical sensor and an unintentional electromagnetic emissions sensor.
