Xwing wins army xTech SBIR autonomy contract

Xwing, a defence and aviation autonomy technology startup, today announced that it was advanced as a winner of a Phase I SBIR from the Army xTech SBIR Autonomy program. In the coming months, Xwing says it will showcase its ability to conduct autonomous airlift and logistics missions during live operational demonstrations for Army stakeholders.

In a recent announcement, Nicole Fox, the Army’s SBIR Program’s portfolio manager for autonomy and contested logistics, sustainment, science and technology stated, “To support mobility and navigation across multiple terrains, it’s important we develop and employ ground and aerial robotic autonomous systems throughout the Army. Solutions developed via the competition – and through follow-on SBIR contracts – will support Soldier safety and efficiency in contested environments.”

“Xwing’s autonomous technology presents a transformative solution for the US Army by addressing critical operational challenges” according to the press release. “Through autonomous flight, the Army can maintain essential air capabilities in contested environments without exposing personnel to heightened risks, while also opening avenues for military innovation in transport, force structure, and combat operations.”

“Xwing is focusing near-term on operations in scenarios typically described by the three Ds of robotics: dull, dirty, and dangerous. This innovation is crucial for reducing dependency on manned aircraft confronted with these threats,” explained Kevin Antcliff, Xwing’s Head of Product. “By shifting to uncrewed aircraft, we aim to enhance safety, efficiency, and operational flexibility across various mission types.”
