ASYLON, an American-Made security drone robotics company, has been awarded a contract from the United States Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), which leads the discovery, development and delivery of warfighting technologies for U.S. air, space and cyberspace forces, to provide the future of persistent Intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR), inspection and perimeter security.
This includes exploring the ability to use available water-based resources in the mission operating environment to generate power and recharge air and ground autonomous platforms, so they remain operational longer at the point of need.
Ghost Robotics™ is revolutionizing ground robotics and the market for unstoppable unmanned ground vehicles with legs (Q-UGV™) for military, homeland security, public safety and enterprise markets.
Ghost’s fast, agile and programmable GR Vision™ and GR Wraith™ Series Q-UGVs offer superior operability over wheeled and tracked designs when navigating unstructured terrain, including urban obstacles, stairs and the great outdoors.
The company’s Q-UGVs can be fitted with any 3rd party sensor, radio, robotic arm and 3rd party AI and autonomy stack for a broad range of inspection, security, EOD, ISTAR, measurement, and specialized applications.
Under this new AFRL contract Asylon has partnered with Ghost Robotics™ to integrate their respective robotic system’s to create a combined, autonomous, and self-powering air and ground robotic solution.
Using ASYLON’s patented field-deployable battery SWAP base station, DroneHome, Ghost’s all-terrain Q-UGVs will remain operational longer at the point of need.

Currently, ASYLON is exploring if the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command (CCDC) Army Research Laboratory’s proprietary nanogalvanic hydrogen generating powder technology can play a role in advancing their efforts.
Asylon’s DroneCore System is a globally scalable autonomous security drone solution optimized for remote command and control.
Ghost Robotics’ family of autonomous all-terrain Q-UGVs are optimized for unstructured terrain and high endurance security, safety and inspection missions.
“The integration of Ghosts’ Q-UGV robot into the DroneCore platform has been a longtime coming,” explains Michael Quiroga, Chief Revenue Officer for ASYLON.
“Our teams have a tremendous amount of respect for each other.”
“ASYLON is more than excited to add automated ground robotics to our growing list of DroneCore capabilities.”

The combined integration of these revolutionary technologies is poised to give our warfighters a competitive advantage by providing the following capabilities:
Optimized Self-Sustaining Power Generation
Autonomous Persistent Air and Ground Perimeter Patrols
True 24/7 Robotic Remote Guarding
Create Geo-Fence Alarm Zones for Autonomous Video Verification and Active Response
Remote Command and Control- Giving Multiple Stakeholders the Ability to Log-In and Set Pre-Programmed Schedules.
Automated Alarm Notifications to Multiple Smart Devices
“The Ghost team is excited to partner with ASYLON on this integration opportunity. Our legged UGVs (Q-UGV™) robots’ combined capabilities will deliver immediate value to both the commercial security and defense spaces,” added Jiren Parikh, CEO Ghost Robotics.
Providing autonomous air and ground robotics powered by Army Research Lab’s innovative nano galvanic technology is a paradigm shift to traditional security capabilities.
ASYLON is an American-MADE security drone robotics company that manufactures the DroneCore™ System, one of the world’s most powerful fully automated persistent aerial asset specifically engineered for remote command and control-perimeter security missions.
