The greatest victory requires no war.

Shield AI is a fast-growing, venture-backed, defense-technology company built around a team of proven executives, distinguished warfighters with relevant national security experience, and world-class AI engineers. By operating with a software backbone, the company is applying self-driving technology to everything that flies. Hivemind, Shield AI’s AI and autonomy software stack, enables collaborative teams of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) to learn new tactics and execute intelligent read-and-react behaviors, without reliance on communication or GPS.  

The company is combining its state-of-the-art software with class-leading aircraft, such as the V-BAT UAS and Kratos’ XQ-58 Valkyrie, to solve the DoD and allies’ most challenging problems. V-BAT beat out 13 competitors for the Multi-Mission Tactical UAS (MTUAS) program to replace ScanEagle and is seen by its global customer base as the most tactical and logistically simple UAS in the world. Teamed with Northrop Grumman, Shield AI is leveraging V-BAT improvements to compete in the U.S. Army's Future Tactical UAS (FTUAS) program.
