“We were greatly honored to present the advanced SPIKE FIREFLY loitering munition system for assessment by the AEWE team. We learned a lot from the exercise and received positive feedback from the US Army operators. We truly believe the SPIKE FIREFLY brings another dimension to the infantry platoon’s urban warfare capability by allowing decisive and lethal overmatch. We will be presenting the SPIKE FIREFLY in the upcoming Modern Day Marines exhibition in Washington DC & in SOFIC 2022 exhibition in Tampa.”
