Aerovironment Announces GPS-Guided Shryke Munitions

AeroVironment has announced the first successful multi-drop, live fire GPS-guided Shryke munitions from the VAPOR 55 MX, an all-electric unmanned aircraft system in collaboration with Corvid and L3Harris Technologies.

The VAPOR 55 MX carried four rounds simultaneously and flawlessly showcased the live fire effects of this capability. Integrating Shryke munitions on the VAPOR 55 MX allows for multiple targets to be designated in one flight.
Shryke, developed by Corvid Technologies and L3Harris Technologies, is known for its versatile, multi-mission precision strike capability, meeting the requirement to stay within 1-2 meters of the designated target. Equipped with a MIL-STD-1316 Electronic Safe and Arm Device (ESAD), L3Harris’ integrator guarantees safety-critical initiation-on-command for energetic systems and facilitates the secure post-flight recovery of remaining installed munitions. 
“The lethality of a 40mm anti-armour modular warhead paired with a lightweight glider provides a highly effective, low-collateral damage solution to the front lines,” said Kyle Bowen, Corvid’s Shryke business development director. The open software and hardware architecture provides added versatility to the VAPOR 55 MX. It allows customers to integrate third-party payloads without being impacted by excessive non-recurring engineering costs and schedule delays.
