Raspet’s purchase of the two TigerShark aircraft—built by NAVMAR Applied Sciences Corporation—along with associated radio and computer equipment, represents a total investment of approximately $2 million, and will substantially increase Raspet’s UAS core flight research capabilities. The TigerShark’s cost is covered in part by grant funding from federal research projects aimed at making UAS safer.
