Unmanned systems leader AeroVironment is set to acquire Tomahawk Robotics, known for its AI-driven robotic control systems. The $120 million deal aims to streamline unmanned systems by uniting both companies’ technology on a single platform. This integration will allow military personnel to operate a range of connected robotic solutions more efficiently. Tomahawk Robotics’ Kinesis Ecosystem, featuring an AI-enhanced and open architecture control system, plays a pivotal role in this transformation.

Wahid Nawabi, AeroVironment’s CEO, intends to integrate Tomahawk Robotics into the company’s small UAS (SUAS) business unit, with no workforce or facility changes in Florida. The move will also introduce Tomahawk Robotics solutions to AeroVironment’s vast network spanning over 55 allied nations. The acquisition represents a strategic synergy between Tomahawk Robotics’ Kinesis platform and AeroVironment’s technology, creating a robust common controller for unmanned systems. Tomahawk Robotics’ Kinesis control system has already been integrated into AeroVironment’s small unmanned aircraft family of systems, demonstrating its potential for further innovation. Brad Truesdell, CEO of Tomahawk Robotics, emphasizes the commitment to meeting warfighters’ needs and expanding the reach of their solutions through this collaboration. This acquisition is expected to enhance AeroVironment’s ability to support various platforms and deliver tailored solutions while enabling interconnected soldiers with a Common Operating Picture through AI and autonomy.
