AF221-DCS01 / Proposal: F2D-3746 “Large Unmanned Hybrid Propulsions LTA Platformfor Urban Air Mobility”

Galaxy Unmanned Systems LLC has two Selectable, Not Funded AFWERX proposals and is
looking for government R&D and Test and Evaluation opportunities. A considerable amount of
work needs to be done to round out the AAM mission ecosystem. Physical infrastructure,
including communications anomalies and gaps that need to be discovered, network systems
tested, and procedures validated. Under that umbrella includes continuing work on ATM-X and
UTM. Galaxy Unmanned Systems LLC is already on multiple contracts assisting with these

These LTA platforms are configurable to support a wide range of missions, including
communications relay flying multiple payloads simultaneously, including UHF, VHF, SMS, 4G,
and 5G, with plenty of space to spread out antennas to limit interference. The ISR icing on the
cake includes the capability to fly sensors in the MX 15, FLIR Sea Star Safire, and the Cineflex
V14 class and HD downlink.

About GUS LLC–
Galaxy Unmanned Systems LLC specializes in designing, developing, producing, and fielding
defense and commercial hybrid Lighter Than Air (LTA) unmanned aircraft systems (UAS). Our
mission is to provide reliable, cost-effective, and innovative solutions to meet the increasing
demand for LTA UAS in both the military and commercial sectors. 

Product and Services:
The Galaxy Unmanned Systems product line includes a range of LTA, fixed-wing, and rotary-
wing UAS, from small, portable systems for reconnaissance and surveillance missions to larger,
more complex systems for cargo delivery and long-range missions. We also offer custom-
designed UAS for specific client needs. Our services include training and support for system
operators, maintenance, repair, and flight services for our systems.

The many benefits of lighter-than-air aircraft include the following:

 Their ability to stay aloft for extended periods with minimal power.
 Low operating costs.
 Their ability to lift heavy payloads.Galaxy Unmanned Systems LLC Their ability to stay aloft for extended periods with minimal power.
