Black Swift Technologies

Based in Boulder, CO and founded in 2011, Black Swift Technologies is recognized for delivering reliable, robust, and highly accurate unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) capable of flying scientific payloads in demanding atmospheric environments (high-altitude, arctic, desert, corrosive particulates, and strong turbulence). Our purpose-built scientific aerial platforms are used around the globe for a variety of specialized atmospheric research missions in extreme conditions, including monitoring and assessing wildland fires, volcanoes, tornadoes, and hurricanes.

The Black Swift S2

A purpose-built research platform engineered to achieve high altitude flights through strong winds and damaging particulates, the Black Swift S2™ is a durable, terrain-following sUAS platform suitable for deployment in harsh environments typical of nomadic scientific field campaigns.
