Teal’s presence on the original Blue sUAS list – the Defense Innovation Unit’s first list of “approved” platforms – has paid off for the company. GSA Advantage is the U.S. government’s online shopping and ordering site: with addition to the GSA Advantage list, Red Cat gets an opportunity to market and sell Teal 2 to more government customers, more easily.
Red Cat’s Teal 2 Available for Purchase through GSA Advantage
by DRONELIFE Staff Writer Ian M. Crosby
Military drone technology company Red Cat Holdings announced that its Teal 2 military-grade sUAS is now available for purchase by government agencies through the U.S. government’s GSA Advantage website. Potential customers are able to access complete specs, hi-res images and government-specific pricing for the Teal 2’s 1.8 GHz model and 2.4 GHz model.
The Teal 2 recently obtained clearance from the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) for designation as a Blue UAS drone, a select group of government authorized drones that are described by the DoD as being, “NDAA compliant, validated as cyber-secure and safe to fly, and are available for government purchase and operation.”
“The Teal 2’s compact size, advanced technology and rugged design make it ideal for the needs of the warfighter, though it’s versatile enough that other federal agencies, including U.S. Customs and Border Protection, have become early-adopter customers,” said Red Cat Senior VP of Global Defense Solutions, Geoff Hitchcock. “We’re proud to now be able to directly offer the Teal 2 for sale to all U.S. government agencies through GSA Advantage.”
The Teal 2 is the first sUAS to feature Teledyne FLIR’s new Hadron 640R sensor, granting end users the highest resolution thermal imaging in a small (Group 1) form factor, optimized for nighttime operations. Additional technology partners for the Teal 2 include Athena AI, Reveal Technology and Tomahawk Robotics.
The Teal 2 will be exhibited by Red Cat at the Elevate UAV Summit in Miami from July 26th-27th. Red Cat has also announced that it will report fiscal year-end 2023 financial results for the 12 months ended April 30, 2023 on Thursday, July 27, 2023 after the market close. From the announcement:
CEO Jeff Thompson and CFO Joseph Hernon will host an earnings conference call at 4:30 p.m. ET on Thursday, July 27, 2023 to review financial results and provide an update on corporate developments. Following management’s formal remarks, there will be a question-and-answer session.
