The facility will offer the space and resources necessary for the company to continue developing its autonomous defense solutions, like the LEAP and ULTRA Long Endurance Aircraft (LEA).

DZYNE Technologies has announced plans to open a new 125,000-square-foot facility in Irvine, California. The company, which specializes in uncrewed autonomous systems (UAS) for defense applications, will use the site to house its engineers, researchers, and manufacturing personnel. In addition, the facility will offer the space and resources necessary for the company to continue developing its autonomous defense solutions, like the LEAP and ULTRA Long Endurance Aircraft (LEA). According to DZYNE Technologies, these products have the ability to provide 40+ and 80+ hours of continuous mission endurances, respectively.

In a recent quote, Matt McCue, President and Co-Founder of DZYNE Technologies, said, "The development of the new facility is a testament to DZYNE's strong partnership and commitment to the Department of Defense. DZYNE has worked closely with the DoD since our inception in 2012 to develop an array of long endurance, low-cost, loitering, and innovative UAS platforms. With the recently announced Replicator Initiative, we feel we are now perfectly suited to meet the Department's increased demand for autonomous defense capabilities. DZYNE's UAS are designed to meet the evolving needs of our warfighters and are expected to play a critical role in future operations for the U.S. and its allies."
