The collaboration will integrate Firestorm’s 3D printed interconnecting and interchangeable airframe components with Greenjets’ advanced ducted fan technology. By leveraging additive manufacturing, they seek to enable next-generation mass production and propulsion systems that are adaptable and cost-effective.

The use of 3D printing allows Firestorm Labs to produce drones with increased flexibility and speed, perfectly suited to meet the evolving needs of defense and security clients. Their computer-designed, 3D printed manufacturing process enables rapid modification of drone configurations, making it possible to fulfill a wide array of mission requirements. With the assistance of artificial intelligence and machine learning, components are efficiently created and assembled, providing an agile and responsive solution.

The partnership with Greenjets brings in their IPM propulsion architecture, renowned for its quiet and efficient performance. Greenjets’ additive manufacturing approach complements Firestorm’s vision by facilitating rapid customization and adaptation to different aircraft and mission scenarios. By combining their technologies, Firestorm and Greenjets aim to achieve 100% 3D printing of the entire UAV body and engine. This approach allows for the integration of multiple payloads and ensures mission success even in challenging environments.
