Maritime Capable Tethered UAS Assessment Event (AE)
04/09/2023 at 11:59 AM EST
SOFWERX, in collaboration with SOF Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics (SOF AT&L) Program Executive Office Special Reconnaissance (PEO-SR), will host an Assessment Event (AE) to identify solutions for a small tethered Uncrewed Aerial System (UAS) that can operate in both land and saltwater maritime environments for intelligence gathering, surveillance and communications. The system must have some built in capability for full motion video, but also enable the hosting of modular payloads to perform additional functions.
Market research indicates that off-the-shelf tethered UAS can satisfy most of the performance attributes desired in this assessment but may require minor adaptations or adjustments to satisfy all performance attributes (modified commercial/government off-the-shelf). A list of salient characteristics is provided in the assessment criteria, along with a delineation of what will be observed at the demonstration and the ultimate system capability.
