AEgis provides a wide spectrum of capabilities in the Directed Energy (DE) community including development and deployment of novel targets and instrumentation to characterize High Energy Laser (HEL) and High Power Microwave (HPM) DE weapon systems.

EMRC's capabilities enhance AEgis' DE mission area, accelerating the testing and fielding of DE weapon systems and expanding our UAS portfolio to support multi-mission sensor suites, swarm applications, and proxy warfare for the warfighter.

"The acquisition of EMRC Heli to the AEgis platform deepens our offering to our existing markets while enabling us to offer complete platform-to-payload solutions and rapidly integrate new advanced capabilities support to adjacent missions," said Jonathan Moneymaker, CEO AEgis Technologies Group. "The recent advancements in our hybrid power units and multi-mission design allow these platforms to address the critical needs of our warfighters across a wide spectrum of ISR, Directed Energy, or even atmospheric phenomenology applications."

"I'm incredibly proud to join the AEgis team," said Tommy Whitaker, EMRC Heli founder. "The cultural, technical, and overall strategic fit is perfect and allows us access to new customers, to accelerate our development, and resources to grow."

The AEgis Technologies platform is Arlington's newest National Security focused investment out of their $1.7B fifth fund. Arlington looks to accelerate AEgis' thesis of "Leading the Transformation of Modern Warfare" through continued inorganic investment while also capitalizing the business to best serve their customers.
