Red Cat Holdings subsidiary Teal Drones has received a $2.6 million purchase order to supply its Teal 2 sUAS to the U.S. Defense Logistics Agency (DLA).

The order, requested by the U.S. Air Force Security Forces, will see 172 Teal 2 units delivered alongside spare parts and training.

“It’s an honor to supply the United States Air Force with the Teal 2 sUAS,” said Red Cat CEO Jeff Thompson. “The Teal 2’s industry-leading night-vision capabilities will be a strong asset in helping the Air Force to secure airfields and bases after dark.”

Approved by the U.S. DoD as Blue UAS and available to purchase through the federal government’s GSA Advantage website, the Teal 2 is designed to Dominate the Night as the world’s leading sUAS for night operations. 

The Teal 2 is the first sUAS to be equipped with Teledyne FLIR’s new Hadron 640R sensor, providing end users with the highest resolution thermal imaging in a small form factor.

The Teal 2 also features the latest intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance technology, delivering time-critical information and enabling operators to make faster, smarter decisions. The system offers multi-vehicle control and artificial intelligence capabilities.

Officially launched in April 2023, early-adopter customers for the Teal 2 have included U.S. Customs and Border Protection, which has taken delivery of 54 systems, and the North Carolina Division of Emergency Management, which has purchased 10 systems for Civil Air Patrol’s North Carolina Wing.
