Enables Fleets of Vehicles

A user-friendly operating system enables fleets of vehicles operated by a single ground station to deliver packaged or integrated payloads more than 3 miles. Designed and built in the USA with a robust supply chain and lean manufacturing techniques, large quantities of FAST systems can be rapidly deployed, even for attritable missions, such as target and counter UAS tests. FAST has been demonstrated in swarms of 30+ vehicles.
