Anduril acquired Blue Force Technologies, designer of the Fury unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), the company announced on 7 September.

Neither company divulged specifics about the purchase, including purchase price.

While Costa Mesa, California-based Anduril is best known for its Lattice defence operating system software, the company has acquired companies in other defence sectors. In June Anduril announced the purchase of Adranos, a rocket propulsion manufacturer, with intentions to scale up its output of solid rocket motors. In 2022 the company purchased Dive Technologies, which manufactures large unmanned underwater vehicles, and in 2021 acquired both tactical UAV company Area-I and anti-UAV equipment manufacturer Copious Imaging.

Fury is intended to be capable of reaching speeds of up to Mach .95 and turning at up to 9 g. The aircraft, funded by the US Air Force’s (USAF’s) Bandit programme for a UAV capable of conducting adversary air training, has been undergoing ground testing; when the first one will take flight is publicly unknown.

Blue Force Technologies is based in Morrisville, North Carolina.
