SILENT ARROW® is a tandem-wing, disposable, heavy payload, autonomous UAS glider designed and built in the United States by Yates Electrospace Corporation to provide relief at up to 10X less cost than parachute drops and with enhanced safety to equipment and personnel. At between $9-$18 per delivered pound, Silent Arrow® is the most efficient standoff delivery platform in the world.*
Hurricanes and flooding of 2017 cut off supply routes to millions of people throughout the United States and Puerto Rico. Silent Arrow® can efficiently deliver much needed medical and other supplies whenever and wherever it is needed.
*Based on publicly available research of known autonomous resupply aircraft with standoff capability as of 3/1/18
An electrically-powered extended range / persistent version of Silent Arrow® is available (ER-700) enabling multiple-use operations and ground-based take-off and recovery from improvised airfields as well as air drop.
