About Us

Silent Falcon UAS Technologies was established to bring state-of-the-art technologies to small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS). 

We incorporate the latest proven technological advances in solar power, RF communications, batteries, sensors, composite materials, and aeronautical design. The Silent Falcon sUAS is the most effective long-endurance, long-range aerial platform for carrying leading-edge sensors that collect, transmit and store the data and imagery required for a rapidly growing number of commercial, public safety, and traditional defense and security ISR applications.

New uses and applications for sUAS are being discovered almost daily. To capitalize on the exploding market for sUAS applications, we have designed the Silent Flacon as a flexible, open-architecture/open-interface system to easily incorporate technological advances in sensors, telemetry, and data and imagery acquisition, transmission, analysis, processing, exploitation and dissemination.

New uses and applications for sUAS are being discovered almost daily.

Silent Falcon is also at the forefront of UAS regulation as an active participant in the NASA UTM (UAS Traffic Management) project currently underway. This project will be instrumental in setting the standards enabling safe and efficient sharing of the National Airspace with UAS.

Silent Falcon has their FAA 333 Exemption Certificate and have flown systems under COAs in the United States. Silent Falcon has also received an Airworthiness Statement from NASA to participate in the UTM (Unmanned Traffic Management) program and an SFOC (Special Flight Operations Certificate) from Transport Canada.
