In june 2023 we have launched our new product: The Evolution Eagle

Our story

After researching drone related incidents ever since 2013 where COTS UAS (Commercial Of The Shelf drones) were being used for bad our Founder Sjoerd Hoogendoorn started to look in to possible countermeasures to mitigate the possible threat of UAS. With a technical background he was looking at drones with nets, lasers, jamming, hacking but eventually came up with the idea to use the animal hunting instincts of Eagles to counter this new and growing threat: They are the masters of the sky!

The pivot

Based on military end user feedback we have pivoted to a new solution. We joined forces with an industry specialist and build our new solution on the lessons learned from our past. This brings us to today, we have launched our new product, inspired by nature, build in Europe, based on military end user feedback!

The Evolution Eagle, a covert fixed wing UAS payload platform.
