AEgis Technologies Group has acquired small unmanned aerial systems (sUAS) manufacturer EMRC Heli.
AEgis provides capabilities in the Directed Energy (DE) community including development and deployment of novel targets and instrumentation to characterize High Energy Laser and High Power Microwave DE weapon systems. EMRC’s capabilities enhance AEgis’ DE mission area, accelerating the testing and fielding of DE weapon systems and expanding the company’s UAS portfolio to support multi-mission sensor suites, swarm applications, and proxy warfare for the warfighter.
Founded in 2010 by Tommy Whitaker, EMRC specializes in the design, rapid prototyping, manufacturing, integration, test, and support of multiple fixed and rotary-wing sUAS platforms. EMRC will integrate into AEgis’ existing management structure with their platforms going to market horizontally through its various mission areas as well as direct to their existing customer base.
