The US Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) has awarded a new other transaction agreement (OTA) to Tesseract Ventures to advance the development of its next-generation drone technology.  

Financial details of the OTA remain undisclosed.  

Tesseract Ventures’ drone technology, named the Special Warfighter Assistive Robotic Machine (SWARM), will help in enhancing the capabilities of the USSOCOM and the Special Operation Forces (SOF). 

SWARM, which will be interoperable with a range of systems, will serve as a new, versatile nano drone featuring smart payload. 

It is composed of a Nano First Person View (FPV) drone, a smart payload system, and smart payloads, all designed to revolutionise surveillance as well as tactical response operations for Special Operations Command warfighters.  

The nano drone is equipped with a multi-function camera system that includes high-resolution, and thermal, and night imaging capabilities, making it suitable for rapid deployment in various scenarios.

Tesseract Ventures highlighted that this SWARM drone can operate individually or in swarms, executing critical tasks such as landing or delivering payloads that safeguard troops from threats like enemy combatants, gas, and radiation.  

The adaptability of the system is further highlighted by its payload system, which can be fitted with explosive charges for targeted strikes against enemy assets and infrastructure, providing a significant advantage to the forces in combat situations. 

Tesseract Ventures CEO John Boucard said: “With the SWARM, Tesseract Ventures is not just introducing a new product; we are ushering in a new era in military technology. 

“This technology is a game-changer for SOF personnel, enabling technological advantages previously unavailable on a single platform. Our commitment to innovation is reflected in the SWARM, offering enhanced capabilities and strategic benefits to our Special Operations Forces.” 

In 2021, RTX secured a $321.2m firm-fixed-price contract to continue the manufacturing and delivery of AN/APQ-187 Silent Knight Radar systems as well as other components for the USSOCOM.
