Reliable Robotics chosen by the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory to evaluate autonomous aircraft capabilities for government missions


Reliable Robotics announced this week it was awarded a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) contract to determine how the company’s remotely operated aircraft system can support the United States Air Force (USAF). The company was chosen to participate in the program based on the technical merit and innovation of their approach to autonomous flight, as well as the qualifications of their team. Their automation technology is aircraft agnostic, allowing dual application on civil and USAF platforms, increasing mission readiness use and reducing potential loss of life in harsh environments.

Reliable Robotics currently operates a large Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) that has flown overpopulated regions in the U.S. with experimental airworthiness approval from the Federal Aviation Administration. During this Phase 1 contract, Reliable Robotics will further examine with the USAF, key areas of impact and opportunity for its dual-use flight technology, including:

Logistics support for facilitating greater aircraft utilization, global reach and readiness with faster aircraft availability.
Increased mission frequency and efficiency in more operating environments with fewer crew, weather and maintenance limitations.
Intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) providing robust mission generation, dwell and collection opportunities.
