AeroVironment Stands with the People of Ukraine and all of NATO

We stand for freedom, and we stand with our allies and sovereign nations in their right to protect their homelands and their very lives when this fundamental right is threatened.



When close air support is not available, you need solutions that go the distance. See how our Switchblade loitering missiles and UAS provide real-time ISR and precision strike no other system can deliver at that range to prevail on the battlefield.



Our Loitering Missiles and UAS GIVE Ukraine an unfair advantage

Our full dedication to supporting the response to 9/11 led us to become the world leader in small unmanned aircraft systems (UAS). This same sense of dedication is our catalyst to deliver next-generation, game-changing capabilities with our Switchblade® loitering missile systems, Group 3 JUMP® 20 VTOL UAS and advanced small UAS.

Ukraine and our eastern European allies need these solutions now to win against the Russian military and strategically deter future aggression.
