Research Institution

Triton Systems will develop a UAV able to deliver critical materials to locations difficult to access by most vehicles. Utilizing a high-speed obstacle avoidance system, the UAV will be able to fly through densely populated environments such as forests or urban areas. Its small footprint allows it to perform maneuvers including entering through doorways while proving to be a difficult target for enemy gunfire. It will be able to carry small to medium sized packages with a payload of 3 kg. The payload may consist of a wide range supplies such as medical supplies, ammunition, fuel, batteries, proving a robust logistics solution for far forward deployed units. An important application is the delivery of fresh whole blood to medics in support of prolonged field care. An ultra-insulated shipping pod has been developed for this UAV to enable shipping up to 2 units of blood.
