Silicis saw a need for a tactical system that could provide force protection for our military in some of the world's most sensitive sites.  The partnership with the REF and United States Army helped shape the first Silicis platform, the ALTUS.

This lighter than air system has been effective at providing ISR capabilities in Iraq and Afghanistan. After 8 years of deployment Silicis saw the need for a more advanced tactical solution. By reinvesting millions into the company, Silicis has developed the DURUS system to be this next generation solution supported by a 36,000 square foot facility with a 93 acre testing and training center.
