“Instead of awarding a winner-take-all contract, AFLCMC created a pool of competent companies they can rely on to tackle different parts and problems,” said Hannan Parvizian, CEO and Co-Founder of Volansi. “Put these together and the net result will be a portfolio of innovative, state-of-the-art solutions AFLCMC can pull from.”
Taking the skills and strengths of fourteen “best in breed” aviation companies and integrating them into a powerful unmanned systems foundation could be a game changer not only for the airforce – but for the industry.
For Volansi and Volansi defense subsidiary VDS, it’s a big win. “Working alongside such companies as Boeing, General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, Kratos Unmanned Aerial Systems and Northrop Grumman, Volansi’s participation in Skyborg could also open the door to new opportunities outside the project,” says Parvizian.
“This is a great chance to bring recognition to our unique defense capabilities,” said Parvizian. “I am confident that our work with Skyborg will allow us to expand our service offering in terms of design, development, and production.”
