DP-12 Rhino
DP-12 was developed by Dragonfly Pictures Inc. to provide a two man deployable, laser designating, vertical take off and landing (VTOL) unmanned aircraft system (UAS). Its mission is to deploy with forward troops, not aviation personnel, and provide ISR, E/O imagry, communications relay, and logistical resupply to front line commanders and their troops.  The DP-12 Rhino can provide autonomous resupply missions to combat outposts of Class I, III, V, and VIII supplies.  This opens up new possibilities, as expensive convoys or air drops are not needed.  There is no risk of IED's and minimal possibility of insurgent attack. The DP-12 Rhino can provide laser designation for networked tactical laser guided munitions during mobile operations in complex terrain.
