Chartis Federal, an integration and engineering firm providing mission critical solutions for the federal government, announced its Periscope R&D Lab which will be unveiling the results of the company’s investment in the Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) space at the 2019 IWCE conference in Las Vegas.
Chartis Federal will initially offer its government customers three UAS platforms delivering performance specs that have historically either been technically unattainable or cost-prohibitive. The product portfolio has two additional UAS platforms planned for demonstrations in Q1 2020.
Periscope enables the company’s research and development (R&D) of optimized airframes and enhanced C4ISR services. All UAS platforms are North American made with the goal of helping law enforcement, homeland security and emergency response teams talk, see and reach farther when executing their missions.
“We saw technology gaps between the solutions available on the market and what our customers require to complete their missions,” said Nick McCarter, Chartis Federal CEO. “Periscope will fill the void by offering drones that surpass everything we’ve seen to date. We open the door to capabilities and solutions our customers thought were unattainable.”
Chartis Federal supports more than $80 million of prime contracts, including with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and Federal Protective Service (FPS). The company was also listed on the 2018 Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies in America and named a Moxie Award winner for boldness in business.
