AeroVironment is among seven suppliers selected by the US Army to compete for small UAS sustainment task orders under a five-year indefinite delivery indefinite quantity contract, the company announced on 9 July.

The awardees will compete for long range reconnaissance surveillance and medium range mobile UAS, Tactical Open Architecture Controller system and spare and repair parts procurement task orders over the duration of the contract.

AeroVironment's RQ-11B Raven and RQ-20A/B Puma UAS are currently in use with the army. Raven is a lightweight solution designed for rapid deployment and high mobility for military applications requiring low-altitude surveillance and reconnaissance intelligence. Puma is designed for land-based and maritime operations.

Kirk Flittie, VP and general manager of AeroVironment’s UAS business segment, said: ‘The army and AeroVironment remain committed to supporting the soldier closest to the fight with UAS solutions proven secure, effective and dependable around the world. The IDIQ contract assures that American soldiers can continue to rely on AeroVironment’s combat-proven solutions to deliver the actionable intelligence they need to proceed with certainty.’
