UAS – BLUE UAS
A HOLISTIC AND CONTINUOUS APPROACH TO RAPIDLY PROTOTYPING AND SCALING COMMERCIAL UAS TECHNOLOGY FOR THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE.
BUILDING A MORE SECURE WORLD.
Need something US-made or off the latest Blue UAS cleared list? The US Government has adopted an approach to rapidly prototyping and scaling capable and secure commercial UAS technology for the Department of Defense. Following in their steps, many US government entities, State/local governments, and organizations have started to adopt this approach as well. Frontier Precision can help provide tailored hardware solutions to meet your specialized needs. As an authorized representative to some of the manufacturers on the Blue UAS cleared list, Frontier is sure to be able to provide the best authorized tool to get the job done.
BLUE UAS CLEARED LIST
A routinely updated list of Department of Defense (DoD) approved drones providing options for the evolving mission needs of government users. These drones are section 848 FY20 NDAA compliant, validated as cyber-secure and safe to fly, and are available for government purchase and operation.
ABOUT BLUE UAS
The Blue UAS effort is holistic and continuous approach that will rapidly vet and scale commercial unmanned aerial system (UAS) technology to the Department of Defense (DoD). This program consists of 5 lines of effort that curate, maintain, and improve a robust roster of policy approved commercial UAS which suit the diverse needs of DoD users. UAS provide novel capabilities in daily life. Commercial drones are increasingly relied upon to study agriculture yields, construction sites, infrastructure, and real estate, as well as deliver supplies, capture extreme sport videography, or assist in search and rescue operations.
The military applications of those same systems become more apparent each day, including transformative on-demand tactical capabilities in contested battle spaces. The ever evolving development of commercial UAS can benefit DoD and government users as systems are routinely updated, vetted and on-ramped – increasing the pace of access to technology.
Policy compliant commercial UAS, once vetted by the Blue UAS On-Ramp effort, do not require a continuous exception to DoD policy renewal, reducing the administrative burden on end-users. The Blue UAS program is not an exclusive path for government validation of UAS, however it is built with the intention of being the most efficient method available for commercial systems.
Blue UAS represents a trusted resource for a broad range of capabilities, from maintaining base infrastructure to promoting physical security through routine patrol and surveillance. Replacing the current restrictive environment around UAS with a permissive structure for review and acquisition will foster the development of individual tactics and expand the DoD’s use and capabilities of UAS.
