Quantum-Systems Inc. Selected for United States Department of Defense APFIT Program

Funding will aid in accelerating production of Vector fixed-wing eVTOL small UAS

Quantum Systems Inc., the Quantum Systems US entity, announced its inclusion in the second set of projects to receive funding for the United States Department of Defense (DOD) pilot program to Accelerate the Procurement and Fielding of Innovative Technologies (APFIT).

The announcement comes after the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering (USD(R&E)) published an official release outlining the 11 DoD program offices that will receive FY23 APFIT funding, with U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) awarding Quantum-Systems Inc. $20 million.

We are honored by DoD's decision to allocate FY23 APFIT funds to accelerate
procurement of our Vector fixed-wing, eVTOL unmanned aircraft system.
This will allow us to increase manufacturing capabilities and get our
mission-critical technology into the hands of more warfighters sooner.
