WICHITA, Kan., May 01, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AgEagle Aerial Systems Inc. (NYSE: UAVS) a leading provider of best-in-class full stack unmanned aviation systems (UAS), sensors and software solutions for customers worldwide in the commercial and government verticals, today announces the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) completed its training for National Guardsman utilizing, among other UAVs, the AgEagle eBee TAC drone, NDAA- compliant and the first fixed-wing drone to be added to the Defense Innovation Unit (DIU) Blue UAS list and cleared to fly over humans.

AgEagle CEO, Bill Irby, commented, “We believe that the use of our drones by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to certify their National Guardsman to use USA is a big win as it serves to validate our technology in the U.S. Military-Industrial complex. The UAS can be used to assist Enhanced Response Force Package (CERFP) soldiers in their vital yet dangerous missions. We look forward to continuing to provide mission-critical support to our growing commercial and government customer base as we further position ourselves as a leader in the increasingly growing UAS market.”

Soldiers from the Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear (CBRN) and high-yield explosive CERFP completed the USACE Unmanned Aviation System (UAS) Basic Qualification Course from March 18-22 at Redstone Arsenal, Alabama. The U.S. military domestic CBRN Response Enterprise includes National Guard units assigned to the National Guard’s Weapons of Mass Destruction Civil Support Teams (WMD-CSTs), CERFPs, and Homeland Response Forces (HRFs). There is at least one National Guard CERFP in each of the 10 Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) regions.

The National Guard CERFP mission capabilities include incident site search of collapsed buildings and structures, conducting rescue tasks to extract trapped casualties, providing mass decontamination, performing medical triage and initial treatment to stabilize patients for transport to medical facilities by the Incident commander, and the recovery of CBRN incident fatalities, all which now include the assistance of unmanned vehicles and other systems.

AgEagle’s eBee TAC is a cyber-secure governmental and tactical mapping drone specifically designed for enhancing situational awareness.

NOTE: The use of the AgEagle and/or eBee TAC is not an endorsement of either product by USACE.
