Textron Systems has been selected as one of two companies to compete for Mid-Endurance Unmanned Aircraft Systems (MEUAS) III task orders from the US Special Operations Command, the company announced on 14 June.

The company is eligible to compete for opportunities to provide contractor-owned, contractor-operated operations with its Aerosonde small unmanned aircraft system (UAS).

MEUAS III is a follow-on contract for UAS intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance services supporting Special Operations Forces operations at multiple international sites. This includes planning, coordination, certification, installation, pre-deployment, deployment, logistics, maintenance, flying operations and post-deployment efforts.

The Aerosonde UAS is equipped to carry numerous payloads in a single flight. It has advanced electro-optic/infrared payloads for day-and-night persistent oversight, precision survey imaging and communications relay to extend the reach of communications in non-linear terrain.
