Prioria Robotics has been awarded multiple contracts from the U.S. Army for its Maveric small UAV.

The contracts, totaling $4.5 million, were awarded by the Army’s Rapid Equipping Force. As part of the contract, Maveric has completed certification by the Army Test and Evaluation Command (ATEC).

Maveric is a hand-launched UAV composed of advanced composite materials, according to Prioria, based in Gainesville, Fla. It features bendable wings that allow a fully assembled airframe to fit in a 6-inch tube. It also uses Prioria’s Merlin information processing platform for control and image processing. Payloads include day, night and short-wave infrared sensors.

“Having ATEC certifications means that we have a safe and reliable system,” said Prioria CEO Bryan da Frota. “We believe as the mission changes and evolves, Maveric will become an instrumental component to meeting these missions.”
