[SatNews] Silent Falcon™ UAS Technologies (SFUAS), a former subsidiary of Bye Aerospace, Inc., has announced a transition to the production phase of its Silent Falcon™ unmanned aircraft system.
The patent-pending Silent Falcon ™ is a solar/electric, all composite, modular small Unmanned Aircraft System (sUAS) with an interchangeable wing configuration designed for commercial, public safety and defense applications. In 2010 Bye Aerospace created what is now SFUAS, capitalizing the company with a prototype electric unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) and initial design work on solar electric hybrid propulsion. The combination of efficient aerodynamic design, lightweight composite construction and advanced solar energy collection gives 25 lb. Silent Falcon™ UAS a remarkable 6 to 12 hour flight endurance.
“The Silent Falcon’s™ unprecedented performance and value is ready for the market place as we have commenced low rate initial production, said John Brown, President of SFUAS. “Our relationship with our marketing team gives us an immediate, powerful sales organization,” said Brown, noting that Silent Falcon™ sales teams are targeting domestic, Latin and South Asia region trade shows in the next few weeks.
“We are extremely pleased with the Silent Falcon™ development progress,” said George E. Bye, CEO of Bye Aerospace and Chairman of the Board of SFUAS. “With Silent Falcon’s™ production, SFUAS has aligned its global sales, marketing and distribution functions, giving customers access to the remarkable capability of the Silent Falcon™ UAS for the first time.”
