Golden Eagle by Teal Drones is an American-made sUAS designed to be applied in a variety of use cases within the Department of Defense and other Government agencies. The Golden Eagle's primary application is short-range ISR capabilities in government operations, but has been adopted by industry for managing wildlife and land, as well as infrastructure and security.

WHAT IS THE BLUE sUAS PROJECT?
The Blue sUAS project developed trusted small unmanned aerial systems (sUAS) for the broader Department of Defense (DoD) and Federal Government partners. This effort builds upon the U.S. Army’s sUAS program of record, Short Range Reconnaissance (SRR), for an inexpensive, rucksack portable, vertical take-off and landing sUAS. Blue sUAS systems share the SRR air vehicles' capabilities but integrate a vendor provided ground control system.
Defense Innovation Unit's (DIU) Blue sUAS project provides an initial 5 secure, trusted sUAS options for DoD and Federal Government procurement that meet FY2020 NDAA Section 848 requirements. The Blue sUAS project does not preclude the Government from purchasing any other UAS that are certified compliant by the purchasing Government organization. DIU does not define Government sUAS compliance standards or provide sUAS security or drone certification for such other efforts.
SYSTEM SPECIFICATIONS AND CAPABILITIES
Certified to fly in DoD and national airspace and meet the criteria required for U.S. Government procurement. The table below provides basic information about all five drones' capabilities.
Each system has a variation of the below specifications and additional attributes to offer DoD and interagency customers.
- Operational Range: 3+ kilometers
- Flight Endurance: 30+ minutes
- Environmental Rating: Flies through dust and rain (IP53)
- Assembly Time: 2 minutes or less
- Take-off Weight: Less than 3lbs
- Payload: High Resolutions Day/Night Stabilized Optics
- Architecture: Built around an open source protocol
Authorized Dealer Network: Purchase from an approved reseller/dealer
Production-Other Transaction Agreement: The successful completion of a prototype OT allows for a follow-on production OT to be executed with built-in sole source justification. A DoD organization can either choose to execute their own P-OTA with any one of the five Blue sUAS options or provide funding to purchase quantities off of an existing P-OT sponsored by a different organization within the DoD.
GSA Schedule: All five Blue sUAS systems will be available for purchase on the GSA schedule by September2020. Traditional methods for purchase through the GSA schedule include use of GSA Advantage for online purchasing.
