Sierra Nevada, Israel Aerospace Industries Plan Joint VOTL UAS Offering for US Market - top government contractors - best government contracting eventIsrael Aerospace Industries and Sierra Nevada Corp. have partnered to jointly develop an unmanned aircraft system with vertical takeoff-and-landing features.

The partnership seeks to offer a tactical VTOL UAS to the U.S. defense market as both companies have observed a demand for unmanned aerial platforms that can support military air operations, IAI said Tuesday.

The joint offering will be designed to help forward-positioned troops perform intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions in austere locations without the use of a runway.

Under the collaboration agreement, SNC plans to combine its UAS development and test experience with IAI’s tools and methods to produce a tactical UAS platform.

The two companies established a collaborative relationship five years ago.
