At present, there are no solutions for equipping Class 1 and 2 unmanned aerial system (UAS) platforms with weapons systems that provide the capability for opportunistic engagement of high value targets (HVT). Munitions deployed on larger UAS, and other fixed-wing SOCOM assets, greatly exceed the payload capacity of Class 1 and 2 UAS assets currently in use for intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) tasks. To address the risks and employment limitations of existing munitions, Corvid proposes development of the Tactical Armament for Loitering OperatioN (TALON) system, which is a compact payload/projectile delivery system that can be quickly integrated on multiple types and sizes of manned and unmanned aircraft. Delivering lethal kinetic energy hit-to-kill (HTK) projectiles with high precision, the TALON systems can radically mitigate the collateral damage and friendly fire risk.
