Teal Drones, the military-drone maker has recently entered into a partnership with Defense-software giant Reveal Technology to come up with real-time 3D battlefield maps.
It is noteworthy that the 4-Ship drone swarm of Teal, which is a part of this collab, is handled by a single operator. Therefore, the platform gives control of four of Teal’s Golden Eagle drones, providing 360-degree surveillance of a target. Reveal’s Farsight mapping software, on the other hand, produces detailed 3D maps by using the four video feeds, and makes them readily available in the field.
CEO of Teal Drones’ publicly traded parent company, Red Cat Holdings, Jeff Thompson stated, “A primary role of Teal Drones – which is one of only a handful of drone companies approved to provide equipment to the U.S. military – is to provide a superior airframe upon which others build apps that allow the military to better meet their objectives, including warfighter safety mitigation. This integration of Reveal’s Farsight software with Teal’s 4-Ship product is one of the most important apps that has been developed for the Golden Eagle so far. We are excited about our partnership with Reveal and look forward to even more groundbreaking developments in the future.”
Andrew Dixon, the COO of Reveal Tech, commented, “What sets Teal and Red Cat apart – and an important reason why we are excited to be working with them – is their demonstrated ability to build and ship product.” Adding further, he said, “Because Teal has a dedicated manufacturing facility in the U.S., they can make good on their promise to deliver product to the military on time, which is an enormous advantage in today’s drone industry, and means that our technology is much more likely to get to users on the front lines when they need it.”
