Springtail Exoskeleton Flying Vehicle (EFV-4A)
The Springtail EFV-4A is a fourth generation single engine powered-lift research vehicle. This craft was built for the express purpose of testing and proving our core technology. This was accomplished on November 5, 2003 when transition to forward flight was achieved. This vehicle is still in service and is being employed as a test bed for further enhancements and refinements to the technology. We are currently using this vehicle for expansion of the flight envelope.
