PLANO, Texas - Martin UAV has been awarded an Other Transaction for Prototype Agreement with the Marine Corps Systems Command to support the Marine Corps Warfighting Laboratory's Organic Reconnaissance, Surveillance and Target Acquisition (Airborne) effort with a Contractor Owned/ Contractor Operated V-BAT UAV system.
The Martin UAV V-BAT UAV will facilitate the Marine Corps objective to develop Tactics, Techniques and Procedures for V-BAT operations in an operational environment over an extended period.
Martin UAV's CEO Ruben Martin commented, "The V-BAT was purpose-built from the ground up to support deployed operations and simply has no equal in the maritime domain. We are excited to hear what the Marines and Sailors in the Amphibious Ready Group think about employing the system, and to see what novel uses they come up with. I have no doubt they will think of things that haven't occurred to us."
