The Defense Innovation Unit (DIU) Blue UAS Program is intended to enable a holistic and continuous approach to rapidly prototyping and scaling capable and secure commercial uncrewed aircraft systems (UASs) and related technology for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). It sponsors the development of innovative new drone technology and makes it easier for government agencies to procure “DoD-cleared” commercial drone tech.
The DIU] interoperability requirement for its Blue UAS program presents a unique opportunity for commercial drone platform manufacturers, component providers, and software companies to collaborate with each other in novel ways. As a second-order impact, companies like Doodle Labs, UXV and Auterion have individually – and together – developed innovative ground-breaking technologies for both the warfighter and commercial user.
