Measure wins AFRL drone contract
Austin, TX-based MEASURE, a leading aerial intelligence company, announced February 9 that the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) has awarded the company a contract to develop and deliver software solutions to support drone operations within Air Force Civil Engineering and Rapid Engineer Deployable Heavy Operational Repair Squadron Engineer (RED HORSE) squadrons. Jesse Stepler, Co-Founder, Chief Strategy Officer, and Head of Product at MEASURE, will serve as Principal Investigator.
Contract recipients are selected by Air Force experts based on soundness, technical merit, and innovation of the proposed approach. Awards are based not only on the ability to perform defense research and development, but also the ability to commercialize the results. During the Phase I Period of Performance, MEASURE will explore unique applications for Air Force drone end-users, quantify benefits, clearly define needed solution adaptations, and determine technical feasibility.
“MEASURE is proud to partner with the USAF to deploy industry-leading drone software solutions for advanced engineering operations,” said MEASURE CEO and Co-Founder Brandon Torres Declet. “We are eager to continue providing mission-critical technologies to the US Department of Defense.”
