altitude flights, thanks to the electric
propulsion component, which is less
affected by ambient air pressure,
making it deployable in many highaltitude
operational scenarios.
For enhanced mission versatility, the
hybrid platform also enables operators
to select power by generator while en
route, switching to the quieter direct
battery power during the mission
itself, enabling maximum covertness.
The company also now offers its
recently launched Golden Eagle -
the first-ever unmanned helicopter
with precise hit capabilities. Based

R
ed Cat Holdings, Inc., a hardwareenabled
software provider to the
drone industry, announced that it has
completed research, development
and production for a four-drone,
multi-vehicle system for defense,
government, and public safety markets.
Developed with its subsidiary Teal
Drones, in close cooperation with
strategic partner Autonodyne, LLC, the
multi-vehicle package will be offered
in two configurations: 4-Ship and
4-Ship+. Both configurations will allow
a single pilot to simultaneously control
up to four of Teal's Golden Eagle units,
which is the first drone mass produced
entirely in the US under strict guidelines
from the US Department of Defense.
The 4-Ship+ will include two extra
Golden Eagle units and an additional
linked controller to facilitate handoff of
control from one pilot to another. Not
only does the 4-Ship+ configuration
allow a back-up pilot to immediately
take over at any time, but the additional
two drones also allow pilots to bring in
units with fresh batteries while units with
drained batteries drop off to be charged
- all without breaking up the four-drone
flight pattern. This allows for continuous

360-degree surveillance of any target
and overcomes the biggest weakness
of any drone: limited battery life.
" 4-Ship is unlocking our vision for
the future of drones, " commented
George Matus, founder and CEO of
Teal. " This early technological inflection
point will redefine how drones are
used across the defense and public
safety markets, arguably increasing
value by an order of magnitude. "
The 4-Ship is a complete solution
that provides operators actionable
information from multiple vehicles at
the same time, including the display of
four simultaneous video feeds, resulting
in faster situational awareness and
decision-making in today's complex
environments. It also offers a savings
in manpower, the most expensive
component of any drone operation,
since four pilots are replaced by one.
" With 4-Ship, we have successfully
integrated the human/machine interface
with an embedded autonomy engine
that offers additional intelligence
and surveillance capabilities from
a single pilot and controller, " said
Steve Jacobson, CEO of Autonodyne,
LLC. " The ease of use and multitude
of applications makes the 4-Ship a
next-generation drone system. "
" 4-Ship represents truly disruptive
technology that will alter the approach
to intelligence, surveillance and
reconnaissance, " said Red Cat Holdings
CEO Jeff Thompson. " No longer are
drone applications limited to a one-pilot/
one-drone situation, drastically altering
the potential missions for drones due

on the combat-proven Black
Eagle 50E platform, the Golden
Eagle incorporates AI-based
technology and Smart Shooter's
SMASH Dragon system. Through
advanced data processing, the AI
system autonomously identifies
and distinguishes between different
types of targets, such as person or
vehicle, whether they are in motion
or stationery, and whether they have
previously been present in the field.
This enables superior situational
awareness and autonomous multitarget
classification and tracking.
Smart Shooter's SMASH Dragon
system - a remotely operated robotic
weaponry payload - integrates a
unique stabilization concept with
proprietary target acquisition, tracking
algorithms and sophisticated computer
vision capabilities. When mounted onto
the Golden Eagle, SMASH Dragon locks
on the static or moving target, tracks
it and ensures a precise target hit. The
system can employ various types of
assault rifles, sniper rifles, 40mm and
other munitions with great precision.
