AgEagle Aerial Systems’ Drones Used for National Guard Training

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has incorporated AgEagle’s eBee TAC drone into its recent training program for national guardsmen.

The eBee TAC is the first fixed-wing drone approved by the Defense Innovation Unit for operation over people. It adheres to the National Defense Authorization Act regulations, AgEagle said.

The USACE’s Unmanned Aviation System Basic Qualification Course, conducted in March at Redstone Arsenal, Alabama, equipped national guardsmen from the Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and high-yield explosive Enhanced Response Force Package with the necessary skills to use the eBee TAC drone among other uncrewed aerial vehicles.

AgEagle CEO Bill Irby said the cyber-secure drone can enhance National Guard CERFP’s capabilities by providing crucial assistance to soldiers in critical yet dangerous missions, including search and rescue operations in collapsed buildings, mass decontamination procedures, medical triage and preliminary treatment for casualties and the recovery of fatalities from CBRN incidents.

Apart from the CERFP, the eBee TAC drone is also expected to augment situational awareness of the U.S. military’s domestic CBRN Response Enterprise, which includes units from the National Guard’s Weapons of Mass Destruction Civil Support Teams and Homeland Response Forces.
