DZYNE Technologies, a developer of uncrewed autonomous systems for defense applications, announced a new manufacturing and R&D facility in Irvine, California.
The 125,000-square-foot facility will feature DZYNE's growing team of engineers, researchers and manufacturing personnel.
"DZYNE has worked closely with the DoD since our inception in 2012 to develop an array of long endurance, low-cost, loitering, and innovative UAS platforms," DZYNE Technologies President and Co-Founder Matt McCue said. "With the recently announced Replicator Initiative, we feel we are now perfectly suited to meet the Department's increased demand for autonomous defense capabilities."
