Short Range Reconnaissance System Overview:
DoD seeks commercial solutions for fielding of the U.S. Army’s Short Range Reconnaissance (SRR) platform. The SRR is intended to be an inexpensive, rucksack portable, vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) small unmanned aircraft that provides the platoon with a rapidly deployed intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) capability to provide situational awareness beyond the next terrain feature.

Acquisition Strategy:
SRR acquisition will follow the DIU Commercial Solutions Opening (CSO) process with the goal of awarding prototype Other Transaction Agreements (OTA) to one or more companies who meet the intent of this Area of Interest (AOI). The prototype OTAs provide the contractual foundation to develop and equip units in low quantities for operational evaluation. Performance throughout the prototype OTA to include the operational evaluation will serve to inform which system(s) are awarded a follow-on production OTA for wider fielding.
