The primary goal of this SBIR is to create computer airflow models and mock-ups of the C-17 as a viable Arsenal Aircraft platform with Tular, our autonomous launch and recovery system, and then to build a sub-scale mock-up.


Target Arm Achieves Vehicle-to-Vehicle Drone Launch & Recovery While Moving

Autonomous vehicle-to-vehicle adds new vision for last mile delivery

by Target Arm; April 27, 2022

Target Arm Inc. announces an industry-first vehicle-to-vehicle drone launch and recovery capability while moving. In mid-April, Target Arm successfully demonstrated multiple vehicle-to-vehicle drone flights with fully autonomous recovery while moving. This autonomous capability opens entirely new use cases for drones with moving vehicles, such as last mile delivery with packages. Potential vehicles include, but are not limited to, trains, buses, trucks, airplanes, SUVs, and even cars.

Target Arm's CEO & Founder, Jeffrey McChesney stated, "I'm so proud of our team demonstrating this new vision of autonomous vehicle-to-vehicle drone launch and recovery with Tular, while on-the-move. Both commercial and military use cases will increase dramatically once users understand they can launch and recover drones from any moving vehicle, and now between them. Imagine a mobile sorting vehicle, such as a package delivery semi-trailer, that launches drones with packages directly to local delivery trucks – and bypassing the static sorting facility and loss of time. The ROI and increased consumer satisfaction are substantial."
