Red Cat reveals second USAF order for Teal 2 surveillance drones
Less than 24 hours after Red Cat Holdings announced its reception of Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification under looming remote identification regulations, the security, defense, and military UAV specialist revealed the second multimillion-dollar order this month for its Teal 2 drones from the US Department of Defense’s official procurement agency.
Red Cat said the second transaction with the US Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) covers 172 units of its tactical reconnaissance and surveillance Teal 2 drones, worth $2.6 million. That follows on the government procurement unit’s order of an equal volume of the craft earlier in August, representing an accumulated value of $5.2 million.
