Swift understands that future warfare will require heavy use of unmanned systems.

In addition, these need to be launched by tube or other means from multiple vehicles, both ground and aerial, and in quantities of one or multiple (swarms). Swift has been developing vehicles for 30+ years and unmanned systems for 20+ years that vary in fixed-wing, glider, VTOL, multi-rotor, and other configurations. Our knowledge in manufacturing approaches, materials, and COTS component selections allows our team to perform quick trade studies to meet one or multiple configurations of UAS that could meet a 1-4 hour endurance, low-cost, UAS that has a GTOW of
