Kansas Robotics Firm to Develop Nano Drones for US Special Ops

Kansas-based robotics developer Tesseract Ventures has received a contract to manufacture nano-sized unmanned aerial systems for the US Special Operations Command (USSOCOM).

The deal covers the assembly of the company’s proprietary Special Warfighter Assistive Robotic Machine (SWARM) solution.

SWARM is a platform with a high-resolution camera and thermal and night vision for first-person view functionality.

The system is designed for rapid deployment, providing users “an edge” for surveillance and response missions.

It can be launched singly or in group configuration and leveraged for landing and dropping payloads.

Additional tasks include troop protection against enemy combatants, radiation, gas, and other related threats.

Furthermore, the nano drone can carry explosive charges to damage enemy assets and infrastructure.

“With the SWARM, Tesseract Ventures is not just introducing a new product; we are ushering in a new era in military technology,” Tesseract Ventures CEO John Boucard stated.

“This technology is a game-changer for personnel, enabling technological advantages previously unavailable on a single platform.”

“Our commitment to innovation is reflected in the SWARM, offering enhanced capabilities and strategic benefits to our Special Operations Forces.”
