ASYLON awarded contract for pushing the limits of autonomous systems for defense

door Defensie Munitiebedrijf

ASYLON Inc., was awarded a contract from the United States Air Force Research Lab to provide the future of persistent ISR, inspection and perimeter security. This includes exploring the ability to use available water-based resources in the mission operating environment to generate power and recharge air and ground autonomous platforms, so they remain operational longer at the point of need. Under this contract Asylon has partnered with Ghost Robotics ™ to integrate their respective robotic system’s to create a combined, autonomous, and self-powering air and ground robotic solution using ASYLON’s patented automated battery SWAP base station, DroneHome.

Currently, ASYLON is exploring if the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command (CCDC) Army Research Laboratory’s proprietary nanogalvanic hydrogen generating powder technology can play a role in advancing their efforts. Asylon’s DroneCore System is a globally scalable autonomous security drone solution optimized for remote command and control. Ghost Robotics’ family of autonomous all-terrain Q-UGVs are optimized for unstructured terrain and high endurance security, safety and inspection missions.
