UAV Solutions, Inc. (UAVS) announced that the company has delivered and trained DoD and Law Enforcement Agency operators on its AsUAS Ghost 60 Multi-Rotor system.

Operators from fourteen DoD & Other Government Agencies (OGA) requested and have been provided training and prototypes for Operational Test and Evaluation thus far.
Under the IWTSD AsUAS program UAVS will deliver 44 systems totalling 88 air vehicles plus ground control stations, support equipment, and training.
