SILENT ARROW® FOR TACTICAL RESUPPLY

image11

GD-SERIES GLIDER / DISPOSABLE / AUTONOMOUS

SILENT ARROW® is a tandem-wing,  disposable, guided delivery vehicle developed for the US Special Forces to conduct military resupply and civilian disaster relief missions at less than half the cost of JPADS with  more than 2.5X the standoff capability.  The patented design allows the 28-foot (8.5m), spring-loaded wingspan to be stowed inside the 8-foot (2.4m) fuselage for compact transportation to the theater of operations. 


Silent Arrow® is deployed from the C-17, C-130, CH-53, V-22, various side-door aircraft as well as via helicopter sling load with wings closed and static-line deployed, or wings already open and locked in position.

ER-SERIES ELECTRIC / REUSABLE / AUTONOMOUS

An electrically-powered extended range / persistent version of Silent Arrow® is available (ER-Series) enabling multiple-use operations and ground-based take-off and recovery from improvised airfields as well as air drop.
