Hoverbike on tour in the US
In March 2016 the Hoverbike made its way across many states across the east coast of the USA.
On 15-17 March, the full-scale P2 and 1/3rd scale model Drone3 Hoverbikes gained much attention as one of the Army’s featured displays at the annual Association of the U.S. Army (AUSA) Global Force Symposium & Exposition held in Huntsville, AL.
In support of the U.S. Army Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center (ARDEC), the Hoverbike is being collaboratively developed by Malloy Aeronautics and SURVICE under contract with the U.S. Army Research Laboratory. It is one of the leading concepts for the Army’s Picatinny Pallet Sustainment Aerial Mobility Vehicle (SAMV). The Picatinny Pallet is intended to support unmanned assured logistics resupply by providing an affordable, modular aerial platform organic to traditional ground-based units.
Other stops on the Hoverbike tour included Fort Benning, GA; Fort Bragg, NC; Quantico, VA; and Fort Lee, VA.
