We’re thrilled to announce that Vesper and Vision Ground Control Station (GCS) are now available for procurement on the GSA Schedule ahead of the end of the fiscal year. Two aircraft + GCS bundles with 1.8 GHz and 2.4 GHz radio options are currently available on GSA Advantage.
We joined DIU’s Blue sUAS Project to realize the project’s mission to “provide secure, trusted, small unmanned aerial systems capability to the U.S. government” and participate in DIU’s broader mission to “strengthen our national security by accelerating the adoption of leading commercial technology throughout the military and growing the national security innovation base.” It was an honor to be named one of the trusted five vendors for the project, and now be available to federal government customers for purchase and use.
Vantage’s team of Darpa Grand Challenge winners, IDEO designers, and NASA developers, and Stanford engineers has had a sole focus for the last 18 months of developing a highly portable ISR UAV capable of offering unprecedented situation awareness in all conditions without detection. We were grateful for guidance from DIU and the Army to meet DoD grade security standards and NDAA compliance. In addition, both Vesper and Vision Ground Control Station have received ATO certification, which was completed by the U.S. Air Force in partnership with DIU.
We’re excited to share topline system specifications and capabilities of Vision Ground Control and Vesper.
