RIDGEFIELD, Conn. - March 16, 2020 - PRLog -- Target Arm is pleased to announce the United States Air Force recently awarded funding to research and develop the Tular attachment apparatus for autonomous, universal, launch and recovery of drones from moving Stryker Interim Armored Vehicles (IAVs) for the US Army.

In particular, through the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) and their AFWERX innovation organization, Target Arm was awarded this Joint Open Topic Phase I on behalf of the US Army.

AFRL and AFWERX have partnered to streamline the Small Business Innovation Research process in an attempt to speed up the experience, broaden the pool of potential applicants and decrease bureaucratic overhead. Beginning in SBIR 18.2, and now in 20.1, the Air Force has begun offering 'Special' SBIR topics that are faster, leaner and open to a broader range of innovations.

Target Arm's Tular device enables rotary and fixed wing Unmanned Aerial System (UAS)/drones to be launched and recovered from any moving vehicle, and even during windy conditions.

"This Phase I further strengthens our vision for Tular: to transform every echelon of the maneuvering force to have its own organic UAS support for ISR or kinetic use across the entire battlespace, air, land or at sea. Our goal now is to gain additional US Army and US Marine Corps support for UAS on-the-move," stated Jeff McChesney/CEO.

Target Arm LLC is a Connecticut-based firm that produces Tular, a patented device that enables rotary and fixed wing drones to launched and recovered from any moving vehicle, and during windy conditions. Target Arm provides both military and commercial solutions with the exact same device for drones on-the-move. To learn more about Target Arm, visit http://www.targetarm.com.
