Thursday, 21 December 2023
The company says it will now be able to expand payload capabilities and augment propulsion systems to deliver even greater utility and versatility to the Air Force Research Laboratory and beyond.

DZYNE Technologies has been awarded a $49 million contract from the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) to support the continued research and development of its cutting-edge long endurance program, which offers a low-cost, military-grade alternative to many legacy crewed and uncrewed autonomous aircraft used by the U.S. Military today.

"This contract represents a pivotal moment in the evolution of DZYNE's long endurance programs," says Matt McCue, President of DZYNE Technologies. "It allows us to expand our payload capabilities and augment our propulsion systems to deliver even greater utility and versatility to our partners at AFRL and beyond. DZYNE greatly appreciates the partnership with AFRL and various users, ultimately strengthening our national security posture."

Spearheaded by a dedicated team of engineers and scientists, DZYNE's long endurance programs have consistently pushed the boundaries of autonomous flight technology. This program has successfully supported ultra-long endurance missions that exceed significant hours of autonomous flight and advanced artificial intelligence command and control integration, offering unparalleled flexibility and adaptability for a variety of demanding military applications.

"DZYNE has been a trusted partner of the U.S. government for over a decade," adds Ben Slater, Chairman of the Board at DZYNE Technologies. "This latest contract is a testament to our unwavering commitment to delivering innovative solutions that address our nation's most pressing security challenges. We are honored to continue working alongside AFRL and, look forward to continuing to develop cutting-edge technologies that break the traditional defense acquisition cost curve and safeguard our country and its interests."

DZYNE's flagship products include the LEAP and ULTRA Long Endurance Aircraft (LEA), capable of providing 40+ and 80+ hours of continuous mission endurances, respectively. DZYNE's LEA products have accumulated worldwide over 50,000 operational flight hours, exemplifying their unmatched cost and performance benefits. In addition, DZYNE has partnered with leading DoD research and warfighting organisations to design and deliver an array of advanced ground- and air-launched Group 1-3 UAS in support of various conventional and asymmetric customer mission needs.
