AgEagle Wins Drone contract from US Department of Defense Innovation Unit

The United States (US) Defense Innovation Unit (DIU) has awarded AgEagle Aerial Systems a contract to deliver its eBee Vision fixed-wing drones and customized command and control software.

The capabilities must be developed in compliance with the US Department of Defense’s Robotic and Autonomous System-Air Interoperability Profile (RAS-A IOP).

RAS-A IOP is a ground control protocol to maintain standardized operations between different drone types approved for US federal agency deployment.

Throughout the project, AgEagle will connect its eBee drone with specific government networks.
