Advanced Tactics Inc, a small defence aircraft contractor in southern California, has teamed up with the Rotor X Aircraft Manufacturing Company in Arizona and surprised the world by secretly developing and demonstrating the first aircraft factory-built Ultralight eVTOL Personal Air Vehicle (PAV) Kit, called DRAGON.
The Advanced Tactics Inc. Black Knight Transformer is the world’s first heavy-lift VTOL multi-rotor that drives like a truck and carries military casualties to safety.
Advanced Tactics Inc. is a pioneer in multi-rotor vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) aircraft technology, and by 2014 they had developed and demonstrated the world’s first VTOL Air/Ground Mobile Vehicle called the Black Knight Transformer for the US Army. The advantage of this revolutionary 4,400 lb. air and ground mobile vehicle with VTOL flight capabilities is that it can fly and land in a safe area, drive to rescue a casualty then drive to a safe area to fly quickly to a field hospital. The Black Knight Transformer is the first multi-rotor that was rpm controlled to fly at over two tons in weight.
Beginning in December of 2021 Advanced Tactics Inc. started work on a low-cost high-performance multi-rotor VTOL unmanned cargo and rescue vehicle with funding from the US Air Force AFWERX program. The goal of this project was to develop and fly a technology evaluation aircraft that could use fuel-burning or electric motors.
