Dash proof-of-concept flight

Earlier this year, Dash Systems - with funding from Center ICE and the Office of Naval Research - flew precision airdrop delivery services through testing in rural Alaska.

The proof-of-concept mission covered over 7,000 miles with flyover drops in communities including Ketchikan, village of Minto, Gulkana, Poker Flats Research Range, Toolik Field Station, and UAF’s High-Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP). In each location, multiple precision airdrop pods capable of holding fifteen pounds of cargo were launched from a Cessna 208 into the specified landing zone.
