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.
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.
The insidious IED threat to resupply convoys is eliminated through Silent Arrow’s capability of reliable, stealthful and highly precise aerial delivery.
Firefighters can be cut off in remote areas when battling wildfires. Silent Arrow® can be deployed without additional risk to human life.
Hostage and riot situations pose many concerns for police and first responders, including supply shortages. Silent Arrow® provides precise resupply drops.
