American Aerospace Technologies Inc. has bought unmanned aircraft system manufacturer PAE ISR for an undisclosed amount in a move to grow AATI's UAS offerings.

AATI said Wednesday the acquisition was part of PAE’s efforts to divest original equipment manufacturing operations and financed by New York-based Riva Ridge Capital Management.

PAE ISR developed the Resolute Eagle, a Group 3 UAS platform that employs conventional and hybrid vertical takeoff-and-landing configurations. The system is designed to work with AATI’s cloud-based InstiMaps threat detection system, which uses a multispectral sensor and an artificial intelligence technology for data visualization.

David Yoel, founder and CEO of AATI, said he foresees the potential of beyond visual line-of-sight UAS technology in the critical infrastructure area.

Mountain View, Calif.-based AATI offers unmanned and manned aircraft flight, UAS airspace development, payload design and sensor integration services.
